March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT IN THE FIGHT AGAINST COLORECTAL CANCER BY SNAPPING A #STRONGARMSELFIE.

A “strong arm selfie” is an easy way to show your support in the fight against colorectal cancer. It’s a sign to a patient that you care. A symbol to a caregiver that you’ve got their back. And, it may also serve as a reminder to get screened for colorectal cancer.

For every #StrongArmSelife, a $1 donation is made to Fight Colorectal Cancer.
(up to $30,000)

COURTNEY'S CAUSE CONTRIBUTES TO COLON CANCER RESEARCH 

The Courtney Anne Diacont Memorial Foundation has contributed to the research referenced in the link below.  We met with Dr. Waldman and were inspired by the exciting work his lab is doing at Thomas Jefferson University.  We also want to thank you for your very generous support over the years.
