We continue to be inspired by the hundreds of volunteers who are out there on the front lines spearheading efforts to put colon cancer on the map and changing the face of this disease. That’s why we started the Volunteer of the Quarter feature—honoring and celebrating some of our most passionate, dedicated volunteers and sharing their stories so you can be inspired, too!

This quarter, we’re celebrating John Lloyd, our superstar volunteer who’s been dedicated for six years. From participating in our Buddy Program to being active in My CCA Support, you can always count on John to lend an ear—and tell a great joke!

Posted on July 9, 2015


From spreading awareness at health fairs to planning Phoenix Undy Run/Walks, Anne Bergersen has been dedicated to our Central Arizona Chapter from the very beginning. As a colon cancer survivor, she doesn’t hesitate to share her story or a few encouraging words; as a dedicated volunteer, she’s willing to do what it takes to give back to the community. The former Chapter Chair may have recently stepped down, but her legacy in the chapter lives on. That’s why we’re excited to honor her as our Hero of the Month.

Jeanne A

We lost a true hero over the July 4th weekend. Today, we honor Jeanne Angalet, whose presence in our My CCA Support chat room, Blue Hope Nation, and Buddy Program was so constant that we almost took it for granted.

No matter how tough things were for her, she would show up, every day and make us laugh. In fact, you would nearly forget she had been fighting this disease for ten years. She was a hope and inspiration to everyone she met in our communities as well as in all of the support groups she so loved participating in. Read more
