StopColonCancerNow.com Celebrates March Gladness; Teams Up With The V Foundation For Cancer Research
NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With the success of its March 8 National Colon Cancer Screening Day in the record books, StopColonCancerNow.com continues to spread "March Gladness" by raising money for The V Foundation for Cancer Research.
In the spirit of this year's basketball-themed "March Gladness" campaign, and because of the impact a story from a patient, survivor, family member or friend can have on colon cancer prevention, StopColonCancerNow.com will make a $5 donation to The V Foundation for every story submitted on the testimonial page of its website through the end of the year.
"People may not always listen to their doctor about getting a colonoscopy, but we hope they will listen to patients who have been impacted by this disease or those who know that the procedure is very tolerable," StopColonCancerNow.com Medical Director, Dr. John Popp said. "The V Foundation's mission of saving lives through research complements our goal of preventing colon cancer by getting more patients screened."Together with ESPN, famed college basketball coach Jimmy Valvano formed the foundation in 1993 before losing his own battle with cancer. To date, 16 grants and more than $2.2 million have been awarded directly to colon cancer funding. "We are so grateful to StopColonCancerNow.com for helping advance our mission," said Susan Braun, CEO of The V Foundation. "As we embark on our 20 th year of funding cutting-edge cancer research, we are particularly mindful of the importance of excellent partners." Whether a story of survival, a story in honor of someone who has battled this disease, or a first person account of a colonoscopy, it really can make a difference.
