The Blue Lights Campaign
Raising Awareness to Conquer Colon Cancer
MARCH is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. Over 30 buildings in Philly and beyond shine in BLUE during March, urging people to get screened for Colorectal Cancer. Every State Capitol will also wear BLUE making it a national effort.
WHAT CAN YOU DO? Hang a strand of BLUE LIGHTS on the door of your home/business, or a BLUE LIGHT on your porch! Send us a photo of your BLUE LIGHTS or of “You in BLUE!” to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Blue Lights Campaign, founded in 2014 by Dr. Marianne Ritchie, is a year-long initiative aiming to increase awareness of colon cancer by educating the public on the importance of prevention and early detection.
Colon cancer (also known as colorectal cancer) is a very common and often deadly disease, but with screening, it is PREVENTABLE. Unfortunately, fewer than 65% of age-appropriate Americans get screened.
