Fight Colorectal Cancer, also known as Fight CRC, has recently enrolled in ThinkGenetic’s expanding Advocacy Partner program, becoming the thirtieth organization to join in the past year.
By entering the ThinkGenetic Advocacy Partner Program, Fight CRC will enjoy the benefits of an awareness boost, inclusion of its expertise in the ThinkGenetic.com knowledge base, and the possibility of donated funds to further its mission.
“ThinkGenetic is grateful to have Fight CRC as an Advocacy Partner,” said ThinkGenetic President, Len Barker. “ThinkGenetic.com has a lot of helpful answers to questions about living with hereditary colorectal cancer conditions, like familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP). When our visitors want to know where they can find others that have navigated what they are going through, we really value having an Advocacy Partner available to help.”
Fight CRC is a national nonprofit advocacy organization that plays an important role in rallying colorectal cancer advocates to action. Fight CRC is known for activism and patient empowerment throughout patient, academic, political, scientific, medical and nonprofit communities. With a mission focused on advocacy, research, patient education and awareness, the organization serves advocates in every state of the U.S. and many others around the world.
“We are proud to be a part of ThinkGenetic’s Advocacy Partner Program,” said Anjee Davis, President of Fight CRC. “Approximately five to ten percent of colon and rectal cancers are linked to an inherited genetic trait; therefore, spreading awareness about these inherited risks and encouraging individuals to talk to their families about their health history is important. Knowing whether or not you have a genetic predisposition to colorectal cancer can be life-saving as it could change your screening guidelines from normal risk to high risk. Through this partnership with ThinkGenetic, we will be able to reach more individuals in need of support and education around hereditary colorectal cancers.”
The ThinkGenetic team is proud of growing participation its Advocacy Partner Program and is excited to team up with Fight CRC to benefit families affected by hereditary colorectal cancer by working together.
