I am working with Dr Whitney Jones and the Colon Cancer Prevention Project along with the Never Too Young project which is a collaboration with CCPP, Colon Cancer Alliance & Bowel Cancer UK. I had the honor of meeting him in person at the CCA National Conference. This project is for anyone diagnosed before age 50 - it doesn't matter what your age is now - if you were diagnosed with CRC prior to age 50, you can help.
If you'd like to join the database as they get the project moving forward, I am collecting information so they can contact you as they get materials, messaging and research to push to get the screening age lowered, and to educate the public and medical community that younger people do get CRC and the rates are rising every year.
Please email me Kathryn@KathrynsTravel.com with the following: ►first and last name ►location (street address, city and state, zipcode) ►age at dx ►dx (colon or rectal) & stage @ dx ►phone ►email Dr Jones and his staff will have access to this information once it is compiled. This could possibly include sharing with CCA staff too. We are pushing for a big national campaign in the US. As this is all developed, we ask that you continue to keep the dialogue going by sharing your story when you have the chance, educating the public and physicians.
