LEAD FROM BEHIND is powered by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance and created in partnership with Ryan Reynolds and his creative agency Maximum Effort to make colon cancer famous.

Let’s make colon cancer famous

LEAD FROM BEHIND is the biggest and boldest awareness initiative ever created for colon cancer. Our goal is simple: Make colon cancer famous, so everyone knows that it is the preventable cancer.

Powered by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, LEAD FROM BEHIND was produced in partnership with Ryan Reynolds and his creative agency Maximum Effort.

Young people are getting colon cancer more often. Black and underserved Americans are at greater risk. Millions of people who might prevent this disease with screening skip the scope.

No one is paying attention, but that’s about to change.
