The Colon Cancer Coalition is a leading source for colon cancer education and awareness, encouraging screening for the nation's No. 2 cancer killer: colorectal cancer. Because colorectal (or colon) cancer is treatable when caught early, we encourage all people to gt educated and get the appropriate screening. Funds raised through our signature Get Your Rear in Gear(r) and Tour de Tush national event series are granted back to the local community to increase screening and raise awareness. Millions of dollars have been granted by the Colon Cancer Coalition to programs that promote early detection, prevention, screening, and patient support services for this preventable disease. What started as one women - in one community - reacting to the loss of her sister, is now a nationwide movement in the fight against colon cancer.
