DEADLINE EXTENDED and We Need Your Help.
The Colon Cancer Coalition received a $10,000 matching gift challenge, we just shy of the goal and have been able to extend the donation deadline to August 30. Every dollar you donate will be doubled until the end of the month – up to $10,000.
We know that 1 in 3 adults are not being screened as recommended. Colon cancer is one of the most preventable cancers. With new technologies being used every day, there’s no excuse to not get screened. Screening saves lives.
Early detection is key to surviving this disease. Together we can do something to prevent colon cancer.
~Kim, Colon Cancer Survivor
Your gift to the Colon Cancer Coalition supports education, prevention, screening and support programs. We know that when colon cancer is found early, in the most treatable stages, 90% of people live 5 or more years. Currently, less than half of colon cancer are found early. Half is NOT enough.
That’s why this challenge is so vital. Every dollar will go to help raise awareness of the importance of screening.
Accept the challenge today by making your gift now. Keep the summers coming for more families to create memories together.
**Donations to the general fund are eligible for the match. Gifts to an event, a participant, or a team will not be included.**
