The newly formed alliance Global Colon Cancer Alliance (GCCA) unites two leading advocacy organisations: the Colon Cancer Alliance, a patient advocacy organisation based in the United States and its European counterpart, EuropaColon.
GCCA will effectively address the issues and provide information surrounding colorectal cancer to clinicians, patients and caregivers across the globe.
The Global Colon Cancer Alliance has three core values based on:
Sharing - Learning - Growing
The goal of the alliance is to provide a worldwide platform that brings together existing organisations and to support the development of new colorectal cancer groups.
By creating such a platform, the Global Colon Cancer Alliance will be able to better unite people from all corners of the world in the fight against colon cancer and to effectively increase awareness, diagnosis and treatment of a disease that kills more than 600,000 people worldwide annually.
