C3 congratulates the Prevent Cancer Foundation on their 25th anniversary this month.

We are proud of the work they do, especially in encouraging screening to prevent colorectal cancer.  This March they will sponsor the 12th Dialogue for Action Prevention Hits the Headlines.

Prevent Cancer also sponsors the Super Colon Tour, an educational program accompanied by a large crawl-through colon.  2010 tour appearances are being scheduled now.

Founded in 1985 by Carolyn “Bo” Aldige in memory of her father, Edward P. Richardson, who died of cancer, it was known until recently as the Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation. The foundation has funded research, provided public education, and helped raise awareness that cancer can be prevented, treated, and beaten.

We wish them many more successful years.
