March 2, 2018 – More than 200 people dressed in blue attended the 1st annual event held downtown Denver at the magnificent McNichols Civic Center Building. Buildings, including the Colorado State Capitol Building, were lit blue to raise awareness of colon cancer. Colon cancer is the #2 cancer killer, and 1:20 will be diagnosed with it. The #1 Symptom = No Symptoms.
With generous support we were able to raise $132,000. This incredible success is only possible because of big-hearted people in Colorado and beyond.
The inaugural Blue Hope Bash Denver is a signature event of the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. It unites both individuals and corporations that are passionate about supporting a mission to end colorectal cancer within our lifetime.

All proceeds made last night will support colon cancer awareness, help fund local patient’s colonoscopies who are uninsured or under insured, and fund programs for persons currently going through cancer treatment.
Dr. Perryman and her staff will also be participating in the Colon Cancer Alliance‘s Undy Walk/Run on June 25th, 2016 at City Park in Denver, CO.

Colon cancer is the 3rd most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S., yet most people don’t talk about it. Colon cancer is preventable by getting routine colonoscopy screenings. There are currently more than 1 million colon cancer survivors in the United States. These statistics were taken from the American Cancer Society’s 2012 Cancer Facts & Figures.

March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.
Did you know that colon cancer is the 2nd leading cancer killer? The good news is that screening tests, such as colonoscopies, can save 30,000 lives each year. These tests not only detect colorectal cancer early, but can also prevent colorectal cancer. When you turn 50 years old, or if you are younger and have a family or personal history of colorectal polyps, colorectal cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or breast, uterine or endometrial cancer, you need to talk to your health care provider about colorectal cancer screening tests.
This Friday March 2nd is Dress In Blue Day.
Get involved to increase colon cancer awareness and help patients in need. Wear blue and encourage everyone you know to talk with their doctor about colon cancer screening. You never know who’s life you may help save.
