Your voice is needed!
Join fellow advocates from around the country as we take our message to Capitol Hill that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable - so long as it receives the full commitment of the U.S. Congress.
Screening rates are going up, and people diagnosed with late stage disease are living longer. But the threat of funding cuts looms larger than ever before. Your Members of Congress must know that you expect them to support colorectal cancer research and prevention funding.
Before you meet face to face with your Members of Congress and their staff, you will receive training, support and encouragement from Fight Colorectal Cancer staff, trainers and fellow advocates. You will be inspired by your own power and that of the others you meet.
With the 2012 elections past us, we have an opportunity to remind our elected officials that we're paying attention to what is happening in Washington. We must make sure that the voice of colorectal cancer patients is heard LOUD and CLEAR. Join us for three remarkable days in March!
