We were thrilled to see so many people recognizing March as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month this year. Our website received over 80,000 visitors and our Helpline had over 700 calls. We were featured on Dulcolax packaging in retailers across America, and highlighted in hundreds of media articles which ran in 44 million newspapers! We were also proud to partner with fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo and CBS Healthwatch to spread our message nationwide.
Help us keep the momentum going! Support the CCA's programs throughout the year.
