Getting Cool for Colon Cancer

Getting Cool for Colon Cancer

Last year advocate Sheila Schrack didn’t only leave Call-on Congress with ideas and tools on advocacy, she left with a new mission. After hearing that Fight Colorectal Cancer’s Lisa Fund dedicates 100 percent of its contributions to late-stage colorectal cancer research, she decided to use her fundraiser, “Polar Bear Dip – Cold for the Cure” and support efforts specifically geared for colon and rectal cancers.
