The Colon Club connects young adults diagnosed with colorectal cancer so they never have to feel alone. Our mission is to talk “poo” to as many people as possible, specifically young adults, educating about the risk factors, genetic precursors, and symptoms of CRC and to demand a COLONOSCOPY when it is appropriate for THEM!
On The Rise (formerly Colondar 2.0) – Coming March 2017!
Colorectal Cancer is on the rise among young adults so in 2017 Colondar 2.0 will become On The Rise – an annual magazine that features four page layouts of 12 men and women, under the stereo typical age of 50, living with CRC! On The Rise also features articles about obstacles that young adult survivors are dealing with such as infertility, dating, body image, ostomy and clinical trials, as well as educating others about the signs and symptoms of CRC and precursors like Lynch Syndrome, FAP (familial adenomatous polyposis) and IBD (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis).

Our first annual magazine after 10 years as a calendar (The Colondar)! Loaded with support, awareness and education, Colondar 2.0 provided unparalleled support to survivors, their caregivers and families, featuring in depth layouts of young adult survivors, their scars and journeys, as well as articles about the obstacles that young adults living with CRC face, such as infertility, dating, sex, genetics, body image and ostomy. Knowledge is power and Colondar 2.0 changed the perception of colorectal cancer and how we, as a society, would educate and raise awareness.
