Cancer Alliance (CCA), a proud member of Community Health Charities, is the
leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to increasing
screening rates and survivorship. Ask the hundreds of thousands of people helped
each year and they will tell you that CCA is an active, caring community. They
know first-hand how devastating this cancer can be. But they also know it
doesn’t have to be this way.
Each year, CCA
programs reach more communities and each year, they see more people getting
screened and beating this disease. They know that a future free of colon cancer
isn’t just a dream – it can be a reality. But, they can’t do it alone. CCA staff
and volunteers are committed to taking action both nationally and locally
through a variety of resources.
