As 2013 Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month kicks off, we’re launching two Twibbon campaigns that will unite survivors, loved ones and advocates under a common symbol of support. Many of you are already participating in Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and we’re thrilled to have your support as we head to Capitol Hill for Call-on Congress this coming month and our Times Square kickoff on March 1st.
If you’ve never heard of a Twibbon, it’s basically a small image that overlays the corner of your Twitter or Facebook profile image, calling attention to colorectal cancer awareness and signifying your support for this cause. This year we have a choice of two. By adding one, you will:
- Raise awareness about the second-leading cancer killer in the United States among your social circles online
- Encourage more dialogue about colorectal cancer, including legislation to promote prevention, screening and treatment
- Be a part of the movement for change and find new like-minded supporters and advocates
Throughout March and beyond, we would love for you to join this online community by adding either the Blue Star Twibbon or the OneMillionStrong Pledge . Just visit either of these campaigns to apply your Colorectal Cancer Awareness Twibbon or Pledge to OneMillionStrong – and spread the word to others!
