About our advocacy and policy efforts
As the nation's oldest and largest colorectal cancer patient and caregiver advocacy organization, we recognize the need for policies that help us in our goal to end colorectal cancer within our lifetime.
That’s why we continuously engage with advocates. Their personal connections to the disease amplify our message, stressing the importance of screening and patient support. Through their efforts, we can ensure that patient voices remain central to our mission, pushing us closer to our objective.
Building relationships with legislators is equally pivotal. Collaborating and sharing information with them at all levels helps shape policies focused on colorectal cancer prevention and treatment. With their backing, we can drive research, improve patient treatment access, and expand screening programs.
We also partner with scientists and researchers at public, private, and government institutions to fund the critical research that will lead to new drugs and treatment protocols.
