A colon cancer diagnosis can be very overwhelming. The dangers, prevention and treatment of colon cancer are still not widely known and are not discussed because colon cancer affects parts of the body that people often find embarrassing or even forbidden to talk about.
Lack of general public awareness of the disease has limited funding for research, kept colon cancer patients unaware of their treatment options and prevented early detection and treatment in far too many cases. Be informed and prevent this disease and its consequences. But you can help.
The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) is the oldest and largest national patient advocacy organization dedicated to ending the suffering caused by colorectal cancer. In order to increase rates of screening and survivorship, the CCA provides patient support, public education, supports research and conducts advocacy work across America. The CCA offers information and support from the first-hand experience of survivors and others whose lives have been touched by this disease. Today, the CCA provides information and services to hundreds of thousands each year. We have multiple programs designed to both assist those affected by the disease as well as raise awareness to improve screening rates. 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.
Charity Navigator gives CCA a four-star rating for both accountability, transparency and finances.
