Colorectal cancer is rising in young people
Colorectal cancer is rising in young adults, and no one knows why. In the U.S., about 10% of colorectal cancer cases are diagnosed in people under 50. Those numbers rise each year. Given these rising trends, the Colorectal Cancer Alliance Chris4Life Research Program awards grants to encourage and support researchers to study and understand why colorectal cancer is rising in young people and how to prevent it.

Nearly 50,000 people with be diagnosed with rectal cancer this year. We awards grants to encourage research in rectal cancer and to establish a successful career path in this field.
Colorectal cancer is one of the few cancers that is preventable. We support researchers studying what motivates people to get screened earlier and detect or prevent this unique cancer.
More survivors are beating colorectal cancer than ever before. However, we still have a long way to go. We need breakthroughs for advanced colorectal cancer and less toxic and more effective cancer treatments.
There is a tremendous unmet need for advancements in screening, treating, and caring for people with colorectal cancer. To foster innovation, we support the training of colorectal cancer researchers.
