About the Colon Cancer Prevention Project

Our Challenge

In the U.S., colorectal cancer is the second leading cancer killer among men and women, despite being a highly preventable disease. Because colon cancer usually starts as slow growing precancerous polyps, screening makes prevention possible. When detected early, it can be successfully treated approximately 90% of the time.

Our Mission and Work

The Colon Cancer Prevention Project’s mission is to eliminate preventable colon cancer death and suffering by increasing screening rates through education, advocacy, health systems improvement, and survivor support.

The Project was formed in 2004 and is based in Louisville, Ky., where it works throughout the region. Kentucky is in the top 5 worst states in the country for colon cancer mortality and incidence. The Project works with local, state, and national partners to impact the state, the region, and the country.

The Project’s work includes:

  • Policy work aimed at increasing screening rates
  • Advocating for funds for uninsured and under-insured people to get screened
  • Overseeing relationships with physicians and facilities who are donating services to help uninsured and under-insured people in the Louisville, Ky. community get screened.
  • Distributing more than 1 million “Are You at Risk?” educational pamphlets across the United States
  • Taking the Giant Inflatable Educational Colon, a 20-foot-long, 8-foot-tall colon, into the Kentucky and Southern Indiana community.
  • Staffing health fairs in the community
  • Talking with the media, businesses, non-profits and other groups to raise awareness of colon cancer in Kentucky and across the United States.
  • Sharing stories of people across the United States who have been impacted by colon cancer.
  • Organizing events that support and honor those impacted by colon cancer and raise awareness. Events include our annual Walk Away from Colon Cancer & 5K Run and our Bottoms Up Bash, both held annually in Kentucky.

Our impact

Since the Project was formed in 2004, Kentucky has gone from 49th of all 50 states for colon cancer screening to 32nd. Last year, more than 200 fewer people in Kentucky were diagnosed with colon cancer.

How we are funded

Programs are funded by individual gifts, corporate contributions, and grants.
