Our new CCCFBlog is up and running! Welcome!
We are excited to roll out this new feature of our website and connect with not only our current supporters but also new web visitors who are looking for information about our organization and colorectal cancer. We hope you will find this blog useful and inspiring. Here’s what we have in store for this space:
- Spotlighting the personal stories of our Team Colon Cancer Challenge participants and supporters;
- One-on-one conversations with our founder, Dr. Thomas Weber;
- Recapping the extraordinary sessions of our annual Early Age Onset Colorectal Cancer Summit, led by world-renowned physicians, scientists and other medical professionals;

And who am I, your resident CCCF blogger? My name is Jennifer Butler, and I have been a CCCF supporter since the very first Colon Cancer Challenge in 2004. I ran then, and I run now, in honor of my stepdad John Hanna, who succumbed to colon cancer a mere 20 months after being diagnosed with the disease in 2002. The support that our team, Running for John, garnered for that first race brought my stepdad immeasurable joy and comfort during the last months of his life. For that, I will be forever grateful to Dr. Weber and the CCCF. I live in Chappaqua, NY, with my husband and French Bulldog and I’m a supermom of two young children. I represented Team Colon Cancer Challenge in this year’s NYC Half-Marathon and am in awe of all of our NYC Marathon runners – whose stories we will spotlight in upcoming posts.
That’s it for now. Stay tuned!
