Colorectal Cancer Alliance
The Colorectal Cancer Alliance is the nation’s oldest and largest nonprofit dedicated to colorectal cancer. Its mission is to empower a nation of allies who work with us to provide support for patients and families, caregivers, and survivors; to raise awareness of preventative measures; and to inspire efforts to fund critical research.
Nearly 150,000 Americans are diagnosed with colorectal cancer in the U.S. each year and about 51,000 die from the disease annually, making it the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths. It is 60% preventable and 90% curable with existing technology and the Alliance promotes screening and early detection to prevent suffering and save lives. We exist to end colorectal cancer within our lifetime.
