6 Ways to Join One Million Strong


It’s easy to become a part of One Million Strong. By joining the movement, you’re showing your support of those in the fight against colorectal cancer. Here are six ways you can show your support:

1. Get Screened

Let’s save a life – starting with yours! Colorectal cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths for both men and women in the United States. But, it’s preventable! There are multiple screening options for colorectal cancer. If you are 50 or older, or have a family history of colorectal cancer, it’s time to talk to your doctor about the best screening option for you. Understand Colorectal Cancer Screening Options.

2. Know the Signs & Symptoms of Colorectal Cancer

Do you know the signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer? How about the risk factors of the disease? Although the signs can vary, there are many symptoms that can indicate colon or rectal cancer. Educate yourself today.

3. Share Your Story

Have you fought colorectal cancer? Are you a caregiver or medical professional? Or, maybe you’re a friend or family member of a survivor or someone who’s passed away. Share your story about how colorectal cancer impacts your life. Your words will inspire others in the fight and amplify the message of One Million Strong. Share your Story. 

4. Come March With Us

We don’t let colorectal cancer rain on our parade. In fact, we’re hosting parades all across the country kicking off in 2014. We’re calling this signature event the One Million Strong March and unifying advocates willing to come out, dress in BLUE and create a stir to raise awareness about colorectal cancer. We’re marching so that everyone knows colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable!

We have many options for those who want to join us – either in person or online! Learn more here:  Come March with Us!
