I learned about Colorectal Cancer Alliance in 2013 when my brother in law Andrew Brown at the age of 37 was diagnosed with stage IV Colon Cancer. Andrew was one of best friends, an amazing husband to my sister Stephanie and a very proud and happy father of 2 little boys Lou and Tony who were only 2 and 4 at the time. Andrew passed away within 11 months of being diagnosed and we were all so very devastated. I had to get involved, to support the cause, the patients and families that have been affected by this disease. I have joined the Alliance as a member of the Board of Directors and I believe with my whole heart in the hard work this team and organization is doing to stop this disease in our lifetime.
