On June 16, we hosted “My Story: Colon Cancer Before 50” as part of the Never Too Young Coalition’s Young Survivors Week. We heard from four young survivors and Dr. Christopher Lieu, who informed us about this rising trend, including signs, symptoms and the importance of family history.
If you couldn’t make the webinar, you’re in luck! Here are the top 5 takeaways, along with the replay:

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.
