This year, an estimated 136,830 people in the United States will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and on average, the lifetime risk of developing colorectal cancer is about 1 in 20. In February 2000, President Bill Clinton officially declared March as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Since then it has become a rallying point for all impacted by this diagnosis to join together to spread awareness, community and hope.
