Fight Colorectal Cancer is an impressive organization fielding a small, tightly focused shop which uses its scarce resources wesely. I ran a small non-profit advocacy team representing all of California's Catholic hospitals. I am familiar with the level of effort and political acumen that is necessary to make a big impact with a modest amount of funding. On a personal level, we reached out to FCC after my dear wife, Diane, passed away about a year ago. It was comforting to learn there was someone we could turn to in our grief.

I reached out to this organization just weeks after my mother passed away from an eight-year battle with colon cancer. I'd called and left a message regarding a question I had about donations, and I fast became friends with almost everyone who worked there. Volunteering with them has provided some of the most fulfilling experiences of my life, and I look forward to remaining a staunch advocate for colon cancer awareness and prevention in the future. I am a richer person for having found them. Their compassion, empathy and knowledge are boundless.

I have so much respect for the amazing women behind Fight CRC, most notably Carlea, Kate & Kim - but i am sure there are others I've not been in direct contact with. I have been in contact with them regularly since 2007 when my stepdaughter's mother was first diagnosed. She continues her battle today, and there hasn't been a time in the last 5 years when Fight CRC hasn't been there for me when I reached out to them. Whether it was for personal emotional support as I sought to most effectively support my family; financial advice for my friend from the answer line (which incidently proved very fruitful at the time); financial assistance by way of offering inexpensive items for purchase that we used for a fundraiser; or medical support by way of providing the lastest information regarding the newest advances in treatments, dealing with side-effects, and their many informative webinars. Adiitionally, I've felt empowered as a constituent by their provision of easy access to address our politicians regarding current legislature pertaining to CRC, and cancer research & funding in general. They truly live up to their mission statement, to educate and support patients, push for changes in policy that will increase and improve research, and to empower survivors (as well as family members, caregivers, etc). It is hard to say enough good things about this organization, the individuals behind it & all they have done for me & my family! I'm honestly not sure how I would have coped with all we've been through without them, or to whom I could have turned if they did not exist.

How did you find this group?

My friend who is the patient was given their business card at one of her first Dr. Appt's after being diagnosed. It had their signature star pin attached, so she picked up a couple of extra ones for family. But instead of just wearing the pin, I read the card & became involved!

I'm a 8.5-year survivor of stage IV CRC who got involved originally through Call on Congress, referred by another fellow survivor. That was about 6 years ago, and the process continues! It's a great organization for survivors who want to be involved in actively making a difference for other patients/survivors throughout the country. Helping influence legislation regarding research funding, screening and prevention is extremely gratifying, and FCRC also has information available to patients that will help them in their fight.

Fight Colorectal Cancer was brought to my attention when I was seeking a non-profit cancer organization to raise money for in celebration of my 5 year colon cancer free anniversary. I did a lot of research to find Fight Colorectal Cancer to be exactly what I was looking for. Their mission, research, what they do for patients and educate those associated with colon cancer.
I reached out to Fight Colorectal Cancer to inform them of my desire to raise funds in celebration of my anniversary. Speaking with Ben Basloe, Director of Developement assisted with everything I needed to get my fundraiser off the ground. We spoke or sent emails regularly throwing ideas and thoughts along with setting up a fundraising page. His expertise along with his understanding to my "Booty Shaking Celebration" Event ideas... we were the perfect team. Anything I needed from them, he supplied and then some. The event was a huge success and I was pleased to have raised as much money as I did.
After my event, I actually considered doing this every year... which I'm still thinking about. Yes, it is a lot of work putting together an event, but the pleasure of working with great people at Fight Colorectal Cancer makes it all the more enjoyable!!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Becoming aware of their motivation to help fight colon cancer. Their website is so very helpful to patients and families touched by colon cancer. I continue to use the site and forward to those in need of becoming informative to this nasty cancer.

C3 is a truly inspiring organization that is tackling one of the most preventable cancers in existence. The organization's founder Lisa Dubow had a vision, and that vision now lives on as her legacy. Lives are literally being saved because of her fighting spirit. Among organizing efforts, marketing campaigs, and volunteering in the community, C3 gives a grant of $30K to a researcher each year to help us get closer to a cure.

Fight Colorectal Cancer is a truly remarkable organization doing a whole lot with limited resources. In addition to educating patients on their options as well as advancements in the field through emails and webinars, the organization allows interested patients and related parties to lobby their elected representatives both via designated Call-on-Congress days as well as an annual trip to Washington DC. The organization also helps administer the Lisa Fund, a $30,000 annual grant for colorectal cancer researchers.

I am truly impressed and inspired by what the organization has been able to accomplish in its first five years and cannot imagine the impact that it will be able to have as its notoriety and resources increase.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

having the opportunity to present the grant awards to selected researches each of the past five years and watching how their research inspires and affects those afflicted with colorectal cancer.

get them more staff and more resources because they've proved that they can maximize whatever they're given.

Fight Coloreactal Cancer is a wonderful non-profit who are working to end the pain and suffering that comes from a horrible disease like colorect cancer.

I have been involved with the organization for five years and in that time I have seen what they can do. They train and mobilize
advocates from around the country. They take their message to Captiol Hill to better educate decision makers on the disease and what they need to be actively doing to combat it. The staff and board are wonderful people and their grassroots are top-notch.

The Great!

Through my work I have done for them and my participation in their Call-on Congress.

I only wish more people around the country could see firsthand what Fight Colorectal Cancer is doing and make an effort to get involved.

Review from Guidestar

The Colorectal Cancer Coalition (C3) is a well-run organization with very dedicated staff and motivated advocates and volunteers. We all support one another in our mission against CRC at in-person meetings, via webinars, and through social media. It's a wonderfully supportive community and I experienced it firsthand after a friend lost his battle. It's so gratifying to advocate for health care policies that will benefit cancer survivors and to associate with C3.

The Great!

Besides participating in Call on Congress, I also help recruit new advocates and raise awareness of the issues as a Regional Director for the northeast United States.

Hope they raise even more funding so that they can expand the impact that they make.

While undergoing treatment for colon cancer, I found that a maillist run by Kate Murphy was a very valuable resource for accurate and useful information. Kate told me about C3, the work that they do in advocacy, patient support and funding research, as well as her own role there as the director of research communcations. I became involved with C3 and found the team to be a very competent group of people, totally dedicated to reducing the suffering and death caused by colorectal cancer. They are efficient and effective in their use of funds, and very worthy of your contributions.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the new lines of research initiated by C3's "Lisa Fund", the new DOD funding for colorectal cancer, and the educational webinars for CRC patients.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase its size so it could provide more kinds of patient support and fund more young researchers who focus on late stage therapies.
