Fight Colorectal Cancer

The Colorectal Cancer Coalition (C3) has officially changed its name to Fight Colorectal Cancer. The name change is intended to mirror what the organization does all day, every day. The updated mission statement summarizes their efforts succinctly:

“Fight Colorectal Cancer demands a cure for colon and rectal cancer. We educate and support patients and caregivers, push for changes in policy that will increase and improve research, and empower survivors to raise their voices against the status quo.”

The name change was effective March 8, 2011, and came on the heels of the advocate group’s annual Call-on-Congress. During this event, individuals touched by colorectal cancer come to Washington and lobby for change. This year marks the 5th annual Call-on-Congress during which advocates:

  • Continued to push for additional research funding increases
  • Continued the push to get a national colorectal cancer screening and treatment program enacted
  • Pushed several new and exciting legislative priorities
