Review for Fight Colorectal Cancer, Alexandria, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

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.

Role:  Board Member & I contributed funds and time as a board member.
