The 2013-2014 budget recently passed by the South Carolina General Assembly contains a specific proviso in the amount of $500,000 matching equivalent funding from private sources toward the CCCR’s Colon Cancer Prevention Network, which fosters colonoscopy screening statewide. 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 the proviso and recognized the potential for screening as an effective strategy to reduce colorectal cancer incidence, deaths and overall health care costs.
