One Million Strong Collection
The One Million Strong Collection features expressions and reflections that inspire us to fight for a cure for colorectal cancer. We fight for moms and dads. Friends and family. Patients and constituents. We fight to raise awareness. To support and inform patients. To change policy. To further research.
And ultimately, we fight for a cure.
Contribute to the Collection!
Show us the millions of reasons you’re in the fight against colorectal cancer and add to our collection! Organizations, teams and groups can join in too! Nan explains how:

Photography. Drawings. Illustrated cartoons. Original songs. Spoken word prose. Workplace fundraisers. Tattoos. Awareness events. Customized toilet paper rolls.
There’s so many ways to show why you’re in the fight and add to the One Million Strong Collection.
Remember – it can be as easy as posting a #StrongArmSelfie! But, if you’re a little more creative, let’s see what you’ve got. To get inspired, read through some of our featured stories.
(To get featured, create your idea & post it online with the #OMSCollection hashtag. We’ll be watching the feeds and get in touch if you’re chosen to be one of our featured stories and in the running to receive one of our amazing prizes!)
Save the Date!
We will be showcasing select contributions to the One Million Strong Collection at our annual awareness event the last week of March 2016! We’ll be in Nashville, Tenn. at the Country Music Hall of Fame on Fri., April 1. More details to come soon!
