Susie’s Cause set out this year with a far-sweeping, ambitious goal: to provide colon cancer education across the country in the underserved, underrepresented communities of 10 major cities. After hosting health festivals in ten cities, engaging an estimated 15,763 people, we feel confident that, while our work might still be far from over, we have taken a major stride in our fight against colorectal cancer.
If you had an extra $57 in your pocket, what would you do with it? For Jack Bohn, a second-grader in Baltimore, the answer was easy.
