Scientific research is among the best ways we can go on the offensive against colon cancer. That’s why we’ve launched the Blue Hope Research Award, a one-year fellowship providing vital resources and funding to a bright investigator interested in making his mark in the colon cancer space. This year, we utilized the American Association for Cancer Research peer-review process to select a scientist who is taking a deeper look at biomarkers associated with treatment of colon cancer. We’re honored to introduce Marios Giannakis, M.D., Ph.D., our first-ever Blue Hope Research Awardee. Learn more about the research he’s working on and what it means for you! Read more

It’s fair to say, we kicked some colon cancer butt last month! From our Nationwide Cancer Prevention Tour (the giant colon saw 30+ cities this month!) to unique fundraising initiatives (butt wipe, anyone?), advocacy & treatment milestones, the biggest Undy 5000 5K Run EVER, the first National Colon Cancer Survivor Day & blue photos galore, together we made a massive footprint. Thank YOU for making it a month to remember! Interested in what all went down? Check out the list & photos below & be sure to tell us about YOUR event in the comments. And don’t forget to read up on how you can help keep the momentum going! Read more
