The Alliance, BLKHLTH, and Cottonelle have teamed up

Why we're working together

Colon cancer is common and deadly. Black Americans are 20% more likely to be diagnosed and even more likely to die from it than other people.  It can be preventable with screening, and it has a 90% survival rate when caught early.
