Mission Statement

The Colon Cancer Alliance is committed to ending the suffering and death caused by colorectal cancer. Using the voice of survivors, we: provide support for those affected by this disease, helping patients and caregivers move from fear to hope, from helplessness to control, from isolation to community; inform the public that most deaths from colon cancer will be prevented if everyone is screened; support research for new treatments and screening techniques; and, advocate for legislation to support efforts to eliminate colorectal cancer.

Description

#CHC - The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) is a national patient advocacy organization dedicated to ending the suffering caused by colorectal cancer. In order to increase rates of screening and survivorship, CCA provides patient support, education, research and advocacy across North America.

As the Voice of Survivors, CCA works as an advocate for colorectal cancer patients and their families. CCA offers information and support from the first-hand experience of survivors and others whose lives have been touched by this disease.

Today, CCA has over 37,000 members. Our help line receives an average of 700 calls monthly, and our support networks have assisted over 150,000 people. The growth and success of the organization is due in large part to caring volunteers who devote considerable time, skill and energy to achieving CCA's vision.

We invite any and all individuals, organizations, government agencies and members of the medical community to join us in our determination prevent and increase awareness of colorectal cancer.
