About Us

Colon Cancer Canada (CCC) was founded in 1996, and born out of significant personal tragedy and loss. From a small, family-run charity, CCC has grown into
a robust, national organization that’s partnered with many prominent Canadian celebrity ambassadors (including Anne Murray, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Darryl Sittler, Neil Crone, Adam van Koeverden, and Lui Passaglia), and raised over $13 million to combat a disease that is Canada’s second deadliest cancer and yet, 90% treatable when detected early.

In 2016, over 9,000 Canadian families will suffer the unnecessary loss of a loved one to colon cancer. CCC was created to provide support for these thousands of people suffering from colon cancer and their families, and to shout loudly that Canadians need not die from this silent killer.

Colon Cancer Canada is the only national organization dedicated to saving lives through increasing public awareness, improving access to screening, funding research fellowships and chairs, and providing education and support resources for colon cancer patients, their families and caregivers.

Not only has CCC made a significant impact on this disease by raising financial support to find a cure and to offer a support network for both patients and families, it has also provided a platform to connect Canada’s best colorectal specialists across the country, as advocates and champions on behalf of their patients and their families.
