As this year’s Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month comes to an end we reflect on how productive C3: Colorectal Cancer Coalition and our Advocates from around the country have been.
Our Second Annual Call on Congress was a wonderful success this year! Thirty five Advocates from the four corners of the country came together in Washington, DC to take their fight to Capitol Hill. Advocates were professionally trained and let loose on their individual Members, where they urged them to support our Cover your Butt legislation.
On March 19th we watched as Advocates Butted-In to Congress, and nearly 2000 calls were placed to 340 Congressional offices. Only three words had to be uttered…”Cover My Butt!”
Now, as April quickly approaches the war against this terrible disease wages on. We must take the high we felt during this past month and continue throughout the year. C3 would like to thank all of our Advocates and with your support we will continue to fight.
