Sari Stone hasn’t even started high school and she’s already making a huge impact. After losing her grandmother Miriam to colon cancer, Sari knew she wanted to honor her legacy. So, for her bat mitzvah, she set up a philanthropic fund where people could contribute. Instead of keeping the more than $6,000 she raised, Sari decided to donate to us here at the Colon Cancer Alliance!
We got a chance to speak with Sari and learn why raising colon cancer awareness is so important to her.

Did you know more than 18,000 African Americans are diagnosed with colon cancer each year? Unfortunately, this community also has higher colon cancer death rates than any other racial group. But it doesn’t have to be this way.
Screening saves lives and there’s no time like the present, so we’ve teamed up with the National Black Church Initiative (NBCI) to launch Now is the Time—our new church-based initiative that’s all about preventing colon cancer by increasing screening rates among African Americans. With Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. joining as Honorary Chair, we’re prepared to tackle this issue head on.
