Every day in March, Fight CRC will feature a new Awareness Ambassador. All of our Ambassadors are sharing their own very personal stories so that we can work to break down barriers to screening.
Meet Conner Centner
“Many of my family members have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer. In 2014, my mother tested positive for Lynch Syndrome, which is a hereditary disease that is linked with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. I was also tested. My results also came back positive. Since then, I have worked to inform family members to get tested for Lynch Syndrome and have reoriented my career focus. I am currently working on my Ph.D. on the development of combination therapies, immunotherapies, and cell preservation.”
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.
