One Million Strong
I want to contribute positively to the cause and the content that can be found on the Internet. In my first few hours of diagnosis, I turned to the Internet to research and dig into other survivor’s stories and experiences. Fight CRC was one of the first places I found that gave me facts and hope.
– Robyn Schmid, Fight CRC Ambassador
What is One Million Strong?
One Million Strong is a community of grassroots advocates sharing stories of strength to fight colorectal cancer. Together we work as a team to raise our voices. We want to create change and save lives. We’re after victory over colorectal cancer. Join us today by taking the first step: share your story.Share Your Story
American Cancer Society research proved that when those personally impacted by colorectal cancer share their experiences, it influences others to get screened. Many newly diagnosed patients and caregivers spend countless hours scouring the internet for stories of hope. Add to the positive content and share your story so those who need to hear it most may absorb it and become energized to advocate. Make an impact now. Tell us what happened to you.
