COLORECTAL CANCER IS THE SECOND LEADING CAUSE OF CANCER DEATH IN THE U.S. WHEN MEN AND WOMEN ARE COMBINED, BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE.

Why BLUE?

  1. The increase in the overall screening rate between 2013 and 2015 translates to an additional 3,785,600 adults screened in 2015. If screening remains at the 2015 level, an estimated 39,700 additional colorectal cancer cases and 37,200 deaths will be prevented through 2030.
     

  2. 277,000 & 203,000
    Estimated cases and deaths prevented by 2030 if we achieve 80% by 20183

     

  3. CRC Life focuses on supporting those with the fewest resources: uninsured, under-insured
     

  4. Education = Action
    CRC Life is local nonprofit that educates our community about colorectal cancer where we live, work, play and pray to empower them
    withinformation they need to make informed colorectal cancer care decisions for themselves and as they advocate and support others.
