MAKING A DIFFERENCE
The Colon Cancer Foundation ™ started with the first Colon Cancer Challenge ® in 2003 organized by Dr. Thomas K. Weber - a surgical oncologist - who saw the need for increasing public awareness of colorectal cancer and the ways in which the disease can be prevented as well as the importance of expanding translational research focused on the causes of and improved treatments for colorectal cancer.
For nearly 20 years, the Colon Cancer Foundation (CCF) has been dedicated to advancing colorectal cancer research, education and prevention. Money raised through the Colon Cancer Challenge ® allows CCF to educate patients and physicians about the need for earliest possible colorectal cancer diagnoses, and prevention through our national public awareness and education campaigns.
