  • 58% of all colorectal cancer deaths in 2020 will be due to “non-screening”
  • Survival rates for a late-stage colorectal cancer diagnosis are 14%, compared to 90% survival rate for early-stage diagnosis

  • There has been a nearly 51% increase in colorectal cancer diagnoses among those younger than 50 years since 1994.
