Happy Mother’s Day from the CCAC

Colorectal cancer is not just “a man’s disease.” We work every day to fight this misconception among men and women alike, while mothers, daughters, wives and friends fight a brutal disease at nearly equal rates as fathers, sons and husbands.

This Mother’s Day, we would like to share some stories about courageous mothers and their experiences with colorectal cancer.

Write to me at kaitw@colorectal-cancer.ca if you would like to pay special tribute to a special mum in your life.
