So, whether it’s your graduation, your first child or your first grandchild, don’t risk missing out on what’s important. Get screened. Get the facts. And get on with your wonderful life.

We’re on a mission
…a mission to get you screened.

Citywide. Statewide. Nationwide. Our goal is spread knowledge. To increase screening for colorectal cancer. To inform legions of people and save countless lives. To enable everyone to live at their happiest and healthiest while savoring every precious moment. That’s what we do. That’s the Colon Cancer Coalition. We’re built on the voices of people like you who are dedicated to being informed. With your help, we can spread the word and end this deadly disease.

Picture of Kirsten who was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer at 22


Kirsten, 26, was just 22 years old and two weeks shy of her college graduation. It was a normal life with one exception: she’d been experiencing unusual symptoms but nobody would listen. After persisting for three years, she finally convinced her doctor something was really wrong. The shocking news? Stage III colon cancer. Fortunately, after surgery and chemotherapy, she’s now a three-year survivor sharing her story —and running in our annual Get Your Rear in Gear 5K—encouraging everyone to know their body, know their family history and be an advocate for their health. So don’t wait. Don’t risk missing what’s important in life. #GetYourRearInGear and get screened.


colon cancer patients will be diagnosed before age 50.
