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.

“I’m a stage IV survivor and nurse. I want to help lower the age for colonoscopies and remove the stigma from colorectal cancer. Together, we need to spread awareness. No one fights alone! I have reached out to many cancer patients in my area and brought them into support groups and help navigate them through the process of second opinions and surgical/testing options.”


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.
