Formerly Colorectal Cancer Coalition (C3)

Our organization was founded in 2005 under the name Colorectal Cancer Coalition (C3). In 2011, the organization officially changed its name to Fight Colorectal Cancer.

The name change mirrors what the organization does all day, every day.

Updated mission statement:

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. Although the organization is currently DBA Fight Colorectal Cancer, tax-deductible giving statements and financial documents continue to reflect the founding name of the Colorectal Cancer Coalition.
