GH Foundation presented a lunch-and-learn meeting to raise colorectal cancer awareness. The meeting’s topics ranged from facts and myths about gastrointestinal health to colorectal cancer facts and screening options; all to promote gastrointestinal health and early detection.

Call on Congress

GH Foundation joined our partners at Fight CRC and across the nation in Washington DC to encourage lawmakers to #PrioritizeCRC!

“Call-on Congress is an event where colon and rectal cancer survivors, caregivers, and loved ones from all over the U.S. unite to make their voices heard in Washington, D.C. We demand that policymakers act. We can’t afford to wait, lives are at stake today. What once was enough, no longer is. We need to fight for more.” Fight CRC
