Screening Madness


“To affect change, you have to be in the spaces and places for change to occur. You can’t just say you want to see change; you have to do the work,” said Candace Henley, colorectal cancer survivor and founder of the Blue Hat Foundation for Colorectal Cancer Awareness, an organization committed to supporting underserved community members who don’t have access to cancer prevention resources.

In 2022, Lurie Cancer Center and the Big Ten Cancer Research Foundation teamed up with Henley and the Blue Hat Foundation during Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month for “Screening Madness” to increase awareness of the importance of colorectal cancer screening.
