Ask the President to reinstate March as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month!
March was officially designated National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month by the House of Representatives, the Senate and White House in 1999 after extensive work by the colorectal cancer community.
Since that time, awareness efforts have grown tremendously with the month of March becoming an opportunity for the community to raise awareness on the devastating impact of this disease, for physicians to speak to their patients about colorectal cancer, for people to get screened, and for the colorectal cancer community to come together and be heard.
Recently the White House has removed National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month from the calendar. We are asking the President to please recognize March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month and show our community that you are committed to helping prevent colorectal cancer.
See the letter that was sent to the White House but more importantly sign on to the petition and add your name to the thousands of colorectal cancer patients, survivors, and advocates we continue to fight for.
