About C4

California Colorectal Cancer Coalition (C4) is a nonprofit organization made up of a diverse group of dedicated individuals from throughout California.

C4 Advocacy

Our major effort in 2018 and 2019 is working with the California Department of Health Care Services to add colorectal cancer screening rates to the quality measures for Medi-Cal insured patients. This is extremely important since Medi-Cal insures about 1/3 of California's population. Medi-Cal is the only major insurer that does not measure colon cancer screening rates. C4 will notify you when the public is invited to comment on the proposed new quality measures.

Survivors Gallery

This gallery is a tribute to those who have personally experienced the impact of colon cancer on every aspect of life including family, career, and community.


Community Grants & Involvement

C4 is actively involved in funding CRC community projects in California. C4 Grants program is outlined at this site. The grants program has been instrumental in saving lives by ensuring the full continuum of colorectal cancer screening for uninsured and underserved populations. One way you can help C4 in our efforts is by joining Amazon Smile.

Eighty by 2018

80% by 2018 is a movement in which C4 and dozens of other organizations have committed to eliminating colorectal cancer as a major public health problem and are working toward the shared goal of reaching 80% screened for colorectal cancer by 2018. Learn more about this effort and how you can be a part of it.
