We are committed to your health and well-being during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Until we can get through the uncertainty driven by the COVID-19 pandemic, we know caring for your family and your loved ones is your focus. We hope to provide some resources and support for you to help get you through.

For our patients, survivors, and caregivers, we’ve created a list of trusted resources for patients to help you navigate your care during COVID-19, as well as questions to ask your care team about symptom care and cancer treatments.

Supporting the Community

Even with uncertainty surrounding many of our events, the work of the Colon Cancer Coalition goes on. We are happy to work with a number of our grantees across the country to fund COVID-19-related financial assistance.

A 60-year-old man with stage IV colon cancer and his wife were given gift cards to purchase food, making it easier to stay home during the COVID-19 outbreak.   

Because of COVID-19 a stage IV patient was unable to work. Financial support relieved stress, allowing her to concentrate on her health and well-being.

Rent and utilities were paid for a stage III colon cancer patient and sole provider for her four children, helping them financially survive the impacts of COVID-19.

If you are in a position to do so, please consider a donation to help maintain the patient support, screening services, and other offerings that the Coalition brings to our grassroots community through Get Your Rear in Gear events. Your support will make a huge difference when our signature events, the main source of our funding, have been so drastically impacted.

Give now and your gift will be doubled.
