March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

There are over 1 million colorectal cancer survivors in the United States.
There are 30+ million that need to be screened. Let’s break down barriers to screening.

We need your help to remove barriers to CRC screening

 

 

Break Down Barriers to Screening.

Did you know that while Medicare covers screening for Americans who qualify if polyps are removed during the procedure they can be left with a large bill to pay? This keeps many Americans from getting the life-saving colorectal cancer screening that they need.

Colorectal cancer is one of the most treatable forms of cancer if caught early. Ending this barrier to screening would reduce Medicare spending by $525 million over a 10-year period and prevent 1,500 to 2,000 cases of colon cancer each year.*

By signing your name, you’re telling legislators that it’s time everyone had access to screening without any financial burden. Fight Colorectal Cancer will carry your name with us when we hit the Hill in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, March 19th.

Raise awareness.

Social media is an effective (and simple) way to raise awareness of colorectal cancer and the importance of screening. By sharing these social media images, you never know who you will remind to “get screened.”

Show your support in the fight against colorectal cancer by snapping a #StrongArmSelfie.

A “strong arm selfie” is an easy way to show your support the fight against colorectal cancer. It’s a sign to a patient that you care. A symbol to a caregiver that you’ve got their back. And, it may also serve as a reminder to get screened for colorectal cancer.

For every #StrongArmSelife, a $1 donation is made to Fight Colorectal Cancer.
(up to $30,000)
