COVID-19 and Cancer
The global impact of COVID-19 and colorectal cancer is still being felt worldwide. We may not know the total effect the pandemic has had on the CRC patient community for some time, but we know first-hand from patients that in many cases their treatment protocol was disrupted, surgeries were delayed, clinical trials were paused, or in some cases closed, and the emotional impact of isolation and anxiety on patients and caregivers continues to be amplified.

Presenters: Clara MacKay, Frances Reid
Prevention and Screening
Worldwide more than 1.2 million people are diagnosed with colorectal cancer each year. In many countries worldwide, there are no CRC screening programs, coverage for testing, or awareness programs to educate the public about the disease and how it can be prevented. We know that screening saves lives. At the GCCA, we are working with our global colorectal cancer community to help effect change, raise awareness and promote screening to help reduce the burden of colorectal cancer worldwide.
