Why should you become an advocate?
The Colorectal Cancer Alliance recognizes the need for policies that help us in our goal to end colorectal cancer within our lifetime. That’s why we continuously collaborate with scientists at public, private, and government research institutions to fund the critical research that will lead to new drugs and treatment protocols. Our advocacy and policy efforts are focused on finding ways to facilitate treatment, screen and prevent colon and rectal cancer, and fund life-saving research.
You can join our efforts by contacting Kim Newcomer, Director of Volunteers, at firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll reach out to you to respond to action alerts, for example, by calling your legislators, sending a letter, using our pre-packaged social media assets to spread awareness, or galvanizing others to join our cause.
