The 2014-2015 budget passed by the South Carolina General Assembly contains a specific line item for screening the uninsured and medically under served of our state, in the amount of $500,000. These funds are intended to match equivalent source of funding received from private sources. Cancer survivor and CCCR Ambassador David Wright partnered with Ted Riley of the SC Cancer Alliance and Nancy Cheney of the American Cancer Society Advocacy Network to advocate for this funding. Thanks to the proactive efforts of these three individuals, legislators strongly supported a second year of funding. This past year alone, the screening program helped 12 individuals access additional care (resection, oncology, etc.) as a result of findings detected during their screening. By detecting cancers early and/or potential source of cancer, we have reduced the cost of cancer care in these 12 individuals thus saving hundreds of thousands of dollars to our State, making this program valuable.

CCCR and the USC Dance Program invite you to:

Affirmation, A Journey of Life through Dance

A student choreography showcase celebrating stories of cancer survivorship.

The Center for Colon Cancer Research is excited to invite you to the December 2nd dance program “Affirmation: A Journey of Life Through Dance” which celebrates stories of cancer survivorship. These are original performances choreographed and performed by USC dancers. The performance will be at Drayton Hall on the USC campus at 6:00.

The Center in partnership with the USC School of Dance would like to invite you to be our guest. The CCCR is offering 50 tickets to individuals interested in attending this performance. Tickets will be given on a first come, first served basis. Also, tickets will be available for purchase at the door. After the dance, the Center will host a short reception, during which guests will have a chance to speak with dancers about their performance. We hope you can join us for this wonderful event.

A less intrusive, less expensive test can stretch limited funds for colon cancer screening and save more lives, according to a study conducted in part in South Carolina.
