Working for a future free of colon cancer.
Introduction
We're a community that provides hope and support to patients and their families, while saving lives through screening, access, awareness, advocacy and research.

We are the leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing colon cancer screening rates and survivorship. We know first-hand how devastating this cancer can be. We also know it doesn’t have to be this way.

We see a brighter future on the horizon. Each year, our programs reach more communities, and each year, we see more people getting screened and beating this disease. We know that a future free of colon cancer isn’t just a dream; it can be a reality. But, we can’t do it alone. Our staff and army of volunteers are committed to taking action both nationally and locally through exciting and impactful campaigns and events. Won’t you join us?

The Colon Cancer Alliance, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501( c ) 3 corporation.
