One Million Strong
I fight for those who can’t fight for themselves – for the children who never got to lead a normal life – for the broken spirits of those who have given it their all… I FIGHT SO THEY CAN WIN
– Will Lanier, survivor, ostomate and fitness guru
What is One Million Strong?
One Million Strong is a community of grassroots advocates sharing stories of strength to fight colorectal cancer. Together we work as a team to raise our voices. We want to create change and save lives. We’re after victory over colorectal cancer. Join us today by taking the first step: share your story.Share Your Story
American Cancer Society research proved that when those personally impacted by colorectal cancer share their experiences, it influences others to get screened. Many newly diagnosed patients and caregivers spend countless hours scouring the internet for stories of hope. Add to the positive content and share your story so those who need to hear it most may absorb it and become energized to advocate. Make an impact now. Tell us what happened to you.
