National Cancer Survivors Month
June is National Cancer Survivors Month. This month, the Alliance celebrates the millions of people who have survived colorectal cancer and supports those still battling this disease.
Take to social media to share your path with colorectal cancer and support others. Choose from a collection of copy-and-paste social media posts to amplify your story.
BlueHQ is a personalized support hub with direct access to the Alliance's universe of tools, resources, and peer communities to improve your CRC path.
Need to talk to someone? Call the Alliance's toll-free Helpline at (877) 422-2030 to speak with one of our certified patient and family support navigators.
Learn more about screening and take our free screening quiz to learn how and when you should get checked based on your risk factors.
“Screening found more than 100 polyps in my colon and I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. A million thoughts run through your mind, but only one seems to matter: How am I going to get through this?
With help from the Alliance, I now call myself a survivor. The Alliance provided invaluable resources and support. I felt like I was on a sheer cliff about to fall over when a patient navigator helped pull me back from the edge.
If it wasn’t for generous people funding the Alliance, I wouldn’t have received the support I so desperately needed."
Read Gabriel's story, and please give to help make more survivors.
