Despite being one of the most preventable and treatable forms of cancer, colon cancer remains the second deadliest cancer among American men and women today. Each year, more than 136,000 individuals are diagnosed with colon cancer, and over 50,000 of them
will die from this disease.
In an effort to reduce colon cancer as a public health problem, the National Colorectal Cancer Round table has created “80% by 2018”, an initiative to increase the colon cancer screening rate among eligible adults to 80 percent by the year 2018.

The Next Great Advance in Cancer Treatment is Here
Immunotherapy is an entirely new class of cancer treatment, with unique characteristics that differentiate it from other kinds of cancer therapies. Cancer immunotherapy—treatments that harness and enhance the innate powers of the immune system to fight cancer—represents the most promising new cancer treatment approach since the development of the first chemo-therapies in the late 1940s.
Because of the immune system’s extraordinary power, its capacity for memory, its exquisite specificity, and its central and universal role in human biology, these treatments have the potential to achieve complete, long-lasting remissions and cancer cures, with few or no side effects, and for any cancer patient, regardless of their cancer type. - Cancer Research Inst.
