COLON CANCER ALLIANCE (CCA) www.ccalliance.org
The Colon Cancer Alliance is the leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing screening rates and survivorship. The CCA works to knock colon cancer out of the top three cancer killers by championing prevention, funding cutting-edge research and providing the highest quality patient support services. The CCA educates the public about colorectal cancer and encourages early detection through appropriate screening and works with other organizations to increase federal, state and private funding for research and effective treatment of all cancers. Additionally, the CCA advocates legislation to support public funding for all cancers, particularly colorectal cancer.
