We Need Your Help to Eliminate Colon Cancer

Posted Nov 20 2012 12:07pm

Mark your calendars and join us for #GivingTuesday.  

This year, on Tuesday November 27, 2012, Susie’s Cause is partnering with #GivingTuesday to raise funds and make a big difference to the communities we serve. Our Health Fairs focus on preventative education for people of all ages in communities where statistically, colon cancer diagnosis and death rates are alarmingly high. Please consider starting this holiday season out right by donating to support our Health Fairs in 2013.

Think about it. One out of 20 U.S. citizens will experience colon cancer in their lifetime. Last year alone, over 50,000 people died of colon cancer. How can that be when this disease is over 90% curable when detected and treated early? Still, colon cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths of men and women. People are dying because they are not finding the cancer soon enough. This is due, in part, to the lack awareness about screening and the difficulty that some find in discussing the disease and reporting symptoms.

But what can you do? You can help Susie's Cause in their effort to increase awareness, not only about colon cancer, but also about how screening works and how it can save lives.

We absolutely need your help to raise public awareness of the importance of timely screening and its positive impact on reducing colon cancer deaths. A donation of any amount will help us produce more Health Fairs and educate more people and save more lives.

“Colon cancer falls especially hard on underserved communities and we need to get the message out about how to prevent and treat it,” says David Rodman Cohan, president of Susie’s Cause.
Susie’s Cause, works to eliminate colon cancer through the development and dissemination of educational programs focused on prevention, early screening and detection, and aggressive therapeutic intervention. This cause is up close and personal to many people who have lost loved ones, including Susie’s Cause President and Founder David Rodman Cohan, who created the non-profit Colon Cancer Foundation after his 40-year-old daughter and mother of two young children died of the disease. We do not want to keep hearing heartbreaking stories like that.Your donation could save a life.
