At Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC), we find it unacceptable that the #2 cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. comes from a preventable disease. We want to see victory over colon and rectal cancers!
Our fight is all about advocacy and research. We’re the leaders when it comes to advocacy in colorectal cancer. We make sure our voices are loud at home and on Capitol Hill. We also lead the way for colorectal cancer research advocates. We train people on how to get involved in the science world, and we make a difference! We give grants to scientists working to cure colorectal cancer, and we put experts in the same room to talk about how to move things forward. This will be our fight until we see victory – a cure."

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.

No-Shave November has been a tradition for many years, but it wasn’t until the fall of 2009 that members of the Chicagoland Hill family decided to use it as a means to raise money for charity. It was a project that held special meaning to the eight Hill children after their father, Matthew Hill, passed away from colon cancer in November 2007.
Participants in No-Shave November have always been willing to ditch their razors and, more recently, donate to cancer fighting foundations. But what started as an easy way for a few followers on Facebook to donate their hard-earned money has turned into a nationwide celebration. Every November for the past six years, these No-Shavers have donated the cost of grooming (from a few dollars on razors to $100 on a salon visit) and helped our organization raise over $2 million dollars to date. As a family run, web-based organization, No-Shave November has grown exponentially since 2009. Our goal is to keep raising money for cancer prevention, education, and research and to let that hair grow in the process! We want every participant to embrace their hair for the many cancer patients that lose theirs due to vigorous treatments. We believe that together, anything is possible, and we’ll get closer to eradicating cancer one whisker at a time!
