LEAD FROM BEHIND — founded by Brooks Bell, powered by the Colorectal Cancer Alliance, and created in partnership with Ryan Reynolds’ Maximum Effort & Chrysi Philalithes — is an initiative on a mission to make colon cancer famous.
The purpose is to help people learn that colon cancer is The Preventable Cancer. It’s the second deadliest cancer in America and rising among young people. And it doesn’t have to be, because it's preventable. Learn more and let your behind be the leader it was born to be at LeadFromBehind.org.
We are pleased to announce the Blue Hope Bash, chaired by Avi Benaim and Karen Paris and Estee and Elliott Portnoy, makes its full return on Saturday, October 29, 2022. Please mark your calendars for an in-person and all-out Bash at The Ritz-Carlton in Washington, DC.
This year’s Blue Hope Bash will inspire, and your support makes it possible to bring hope to the colorectal cancer community.
National Blue Hope Bash
This year, October 1 is Ostomy Awareness Day and kicks off a month of spreading awareness, increasing the national visibility of those living with ostomies, breaking the silence, and shining a positive light on what has saved so many lives. Join us in celebrating ostomates and their life-saving devices.
Ostomy Awareness Day
When the screening age was lowered from 50 to 45 on May 18, 2021, the Alliance and its incredible network of volunteer advocates rose up to help ensure screening coverage for those facing the rising risk of colorectal cancer — 20 million people between the ages of 45 and 49.
Help us to continue the critical work of spreading awareness— if you’re 45 or older, it's time to get screened! #TomorrowCantWait

Most people don't know that colorectal cancer is the second deadliest cancer in the United States or that it's highly preventable — and that’s why we’re turning up the volume on this disease.
It’s time to stop the silence, reject the stigma, and cancel the killer. Every step brings us closer to ending this disease. It’s time to #WalkLoud!
Your participation means more prevention programs for those at risk, more expert support for patients, and more funding for innovative research.
Register, fundraise, start a team, join a team or walk as an individual – because tomorrow can’t wait!
