March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month, and the Colorectal Cancer Alliance is challenging you to avoid assumptions and get more information about colorectal cancer that my help you or a loved one manage this deadly disease.
For the month of March, J.C. Ballard's Inspired Works is going blue to support colorectal cancer awareness!
Colorectal cancer – cancer that starts in the colon or rectum – is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the second leading cause of cancer death in men and women combined in the United States. Approximately 140,000 people are diagnosed and more than 50,000 people die from colon cancer in the U.S. annually. At the same time, colorectal cancer is also the most preventable and treatable type of cancer. The five-year survival rate for colorectal cancer found at the local stage is 90 percent, compared to 14 percent for colorectal cancer found at distant stages.
Through research and education about prevention, screening, and treatment, it is possible to end colorectal cancer in our lifetime. Whether you are a patient navigating your diagnosis or caregiver providing support, the Colorectal Cancer Alliance has resources for you.
