CCCF Launching First Ever Summit for Young CRC

I am very pleased to announce the first ever Early Age Onset (EAO) Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Summit.   The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation will host the EAO-CRC Summit on Saturday, March 21 in Collaboration with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  The Summit will kick off  Challenge Weekend 2015 in New York City. 

In my many years as a surgeon I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the incidence rates of colorectal cancer in those over 50 years of age decrease by almost 30% during this past decade.  Unfortunately, I’ve also watched colon and rectal cancer diagnoses increase significantly among adults under 50. Rebecca Siegel's team at the American Cancer Society reported annual increases of 1.5% in men and 1.6% in women with the largest increase seen in the youngest age group (20-29 years) with increased rates of    5.2% and 5.6% in men and women respectively,  occurring  annually between 1992-2005. Disturbingly, this increased incidence is mostly driven by rising rates of rectal cancer, the incidence of which has increased by 75% in people under 50 years of age over the last 40 years!

NYSC’s sponsorship encourages fitness to prevent colorectal cancers

 

WHITE PLAINS, New YorkNovember 4, 2014The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF), a New York-based nonprofit dedicated to reducing colorectal cancer incidence and death throughout the United States, has been joined in the fight against colorectal cancer by New York Sports Clubs (NYSC), the tri-state area’s preferred fitness resource.

New York Sports Clubs began its support of CCCF as a sponsor of last year’s first Westchester Challenge. Now they are joining the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation as a sponsor of the foundation’s three annual Challenges and other events. NYSC recognized the effect diet and exercise can have in colorectal cancer prevention and wanted to add their support to the fight.

With the help of New York Sports Clubs, CCCF is adding a new dimension to Challenge by supplementing the walks and runs with NYSC Health Hubs – fitness challenges designed to accommodate CCCF’s multi-generational audiences. This new element will premiere at the New Jersey Challenge being held at the Prudential Center on November 15.

Join Crewe of Cressy - Teespring Campaign
October 15, 2014


teampaulNOJoin Crewe of Cressy – Teespring Campaign

We created this campaign in loving memory of Paul Cressy, who passed away on August 1. Paul fought the long and hard fight with colon cancer. He was the center of a loving, close-knit extended family, and group of faithful, lifetime friends. Paul was gracious and kind, with an infectious spirit that will live on in all he touched. In his writings, Paul would remind us that goodness lurks in the shadow of tragedy. His resolute courage in the face of incredible adversity will continue to serve as an inspiration to those who knew him.

“Crewe of Cressy” honors Paul’s memory and legacy of raising awareness of colorectal cancer and fighting for a cure. Paul’s own words inspired this campaign and will continue to inspire us in the years to come. 

He wrote:

“This has been hard and nasty and uncomfortable and sad and long and frustrating and sometime lonely, but it has also been enlightening and rewarding and calming and joyful and inspiring and loving. The cheating in all of this is that I have the most affectionate train of support behind me that does not allow me to feel sorrow or self-pity. My home, my work and my friendships have reinforced the walls around me and protected me from any negativity. The taboo of cancer is just that and like any controversy that may infect your life, the support you muster is your lifeline through the chaos. The secret that is revealed is that the support you give…is the support you get.” August 27, 2010

Later he added:

“Just so you know there are no epiphanies in this entire event other than to galvanize what I do believe. We are crafted in the image, gifted with the tools to be the best we can be. To recognize and acknowledge these gifts in one another is the struggle. The ability to filter through nonsense, ignore the immaterial and concentrate on what we have to offer is the reward.” October 21, 2010

With your support we can continue our fight against colorectal cancer in Paul’s memory and work toward A World Without Colorectal Cancer. Please visit http://teespring.com/TeamPaul to purchase your Crewe of Cressy shirt today.   Proceeds support the Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation and its life saving public outreach, screening and prevention, and research programs focused on early-age onset of colorectal cancer.
