Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX) and Congressman Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) recently introduced a Congressional Resolution marking the tenth anniversary of the first Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
C3 and our Cover Your Butt Campaign were also recognized for our efforts in building support at the grassroots level, and helping to shape policy decisions so the most effective colorectal cancer prevention and treatments are available to all Americans. Read the resolution.
The resolution was introduced alongside HR 1189, the Colorectal Cancer Prevention, Early Detection and Treatment Act. The bill would create a National Colorectal Cancer Screening Program.
