HELP US ERADICATE COLON CANCER TODAY!!!
Welcome to the Prophete Family Fundraising Page! Thank you for visiting :) We created this page because we want to make an impact in the fight against colorectal cancer, while honoring our beloved mother who succumbed to colon cancer on August 30, 2007.
When you support us with a donation, you are joining our global movement to end colorectal (colon) cancer forever!
The Colon Cancer Challenge Foundation (CCCF) has been working since 2003 to fund screening programs for the uninsured and provide much needed funds to young investigators who are committed to finding a cure for colorectal cancer.
This year their goal is to raise $1 Million dollars. $1 Million dollars will allow CCCF to greatly enhance and expand it's awareness programs focused on encouraging the public to Get the Facts, Talk to their Family and Doctor about their medical history and risk factors, and Get Screened! All in an effort to spread the word that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable with prevention and screening.
To that end, the Prophete Family (that's us!) has set a goal of $1000! Granted we're aiming for a $1000, we certainly wouldn't mind doubling or tripling or even quadrupling said number for such an AWESOME cause.
Keep this statistic in mind as you decide how much you want to donate: 51,000 Americans died from colorectal cancer this past year. That's approximately 140 people passing away a day!!!
Please consider joining our national movement by supporting our common goal of ending colorectal cancer forever with a tax-deductible donation or a page of your own.
You can make a donation online by clicking on the DONATE button above our fundraising thermometer. Your support helps us get another step closer to a world without colorectal cancer.
Every little bit helps, so please find it in your hearts...and your wallets...to give as much as you can. We promise it is HUGELY appreciated!
Thank you again for your support and please share our story with your friends and family!
To the amazing woman that brought us into the world:
We love you more than words can ever truly and fully express. Our hearts are heavy with your absence, but we're comforted by the memories we carry within us each and every day. We will continue to stand tall and smile because we know we have our own personal guardian angel watching over us.
May you rest in eternal peace, because you absolutely deserve it! FOREVER loved, ALWAYS missed, NEVER forgotten.
