The National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance funds cancer research and promotes the life-saving value of cancer screening.

Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women combined in the U.S., yet the disease is curable 90% of the time when detected early.

The National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance (NCCRA) was established in March 2000 by Katie Couric, Lilly Tartikoff, and EIF with the goals of funding research to develop better tests, treatments, and ultimately a cure, as well as promoting the life-saving value of screening. In 2017, the NCCRA’s research portfolio was formally integrated into Stand Up To Cancer with the establishment of an SU2C Colon Cancer Dream Team, but NCCRA awareness efforts continue.
