The mission of the California Colorectal Cancer Coalition is to increase colorectal cancer screening rates to reduce suffering and save lives. One way we do this is by reaching out to legislators and other key influencers to educate them about the disease, and urge them to take action on behalf of their constituents.

State Legislation: C4 is the co-sponsor with ACSCAN of AB 1763 Gipson to remove the cost sharing for the needed colonoscopy after a positive fecal occult blood test (FOBT). The bill was the focus of our 2016 Lobby day and ACSCAN's lobby day and as a result of these efforts has passed both the Assembly and Senate. It will arrive on Governor's Brown desk on August 25. We need your help in being sure he signs this bill.
