CCCF LAUNCHES THE 2014 HOLIDAY CHALLENGE
December 10, 2013


ornament-with-ribbon-WEBColorectal cancer doesn't take a break for the holidays, and neither do we. We need your help to further our mission of A World Without Colorectal Cancer™

With your help we have made great strides over the past 10 years. Our outreach efforts have resulted in increased screening rates in women and men over the age of 50 with greatly improved outcomes, but colorectal cancer is still killing over 50,000 of our loved ones each year.  Unfortunately, we have also seen a drastic increase in late stage incidence in young people age 20 -29 years of age. 

Here at CCCF we are dedicated to changing these outcomes by expanding our outreach efforts to the younger population, funding screening programs for the un-insured and underserved and funding research projects that are focused on understanding the early-age onset of colorectal cancer. 

Your donation of just $20 would help us provide educational materials at another outreach event. A gift of $50 will help us provide prep material and transportation for an un-insured individual. And, a donation of $100 will help us fund a young research fellow and their efforts to eradicate colorectal cancer. 

Every day 139 of our loved ones will lose their battle with colorectal cancer. Please take a few minutes to help us raise funds for awareness, screening and research. Donate now and give the best present anyone could ask for, hope. 

Thank you and Happy Holidays. 

Sincerely,

Catherine Montaldo
Executive Director
Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation 

P.S. Tell a friend about this campaign and help us realize our goal of A World Without Colorectal Cancer™.
