Your voice is needed!
We are so excited to host our 8th annual Call-on Congress. Join us as we push to make colorectal cancer a NATIONAL priority.
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 extensive training, support and encouragement from Fight Colorectal Cancer staff, leading experts, and fellow advocates. When you attend this event, one thing we know, is you will leave educated, empowered, and supported by fellow advocates and survivors.
This is your opportunity to join us as we 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. Be a part of 3 remarkable days in March!
