Thanks to the generosity of our donors and supporters, Fight Colorectal Cancer is able to restrict research funds for the sole purpose of financially supporting colon and rectal cancer research initiatives.
This has led to:
- Funding for research grants and fellowships to support talented, brilliant scientists
- Convening discussions with thought leaders, researchers and scientists
- Raising awareness in the scientific and medical community
- Training research advocates to engage in the research process
- Publications and initiatives ensuring survivor voices are heard
The research dollars donated to Fight Colorectal Cancer foster meaningful partnerships and collaborations with scientists, medical professionals, medical institutes and academic centers. (For example, see our groundbreaking work in colorectal cancer immunology).
Our consistent participation in the community reminds scientists, physicians and thought leaders that there are patients, caregivers and family members impatiently waiting for a cure.
It is our goal to continue a concerted research effort to improve the quality of life for those living with colorectal cancer, improve prevention efforts and ultimately, find a cure.
