That’s right. We want to shout it from the rooftops: it’s OK to talk about your doo-doo! We all had things we were afraid of when we were kids, whether it was going to sleep, sitting on Santa’s lap at the mall or using the potty. After all, the bathroom can be a scary and unfamiliar place for the little ones. That’s why Paul Perzyk and Eric Bookout, also known as Uncle Paul and Mr. Book, created ‘Even Poop Has a Purpose,’ a children’s book dedicated to helping kids overcome their fears. Together, we’re making poop a hot topic and one folks young and old are comfortable chatting about. $1 from every book even benefits us! Learn more about this dynamic duo and why your little poopers will want this book in their stockings! Read more

Martha Raymond, our Patient Support and Outreach Director, hit the streets with thousands of folks who were receiving free screenings, education and fun. Check out these great pics, featuring the infamous giant inflatable colon. What exciting awareness events!

Have you noticed things getting a little hairy this November?
We’ve loved seeing colon cancer join Movember, the movement each November where men grow various forms of facial hair to bring attention to men’s health issues. This year several rock star fundraisers, including radio DJ Wes Styles, grew out their facial fuzz in support of colon health and the Colon Cancer Alliance — thank you, guys! Read more
