Welcome to EuropaColon

Colorectal cancer remains the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths in Europe. Every year, around 230,000 people die from the disease however many of these lives could be saved by early detection and treatment.

EuropaColon aims to unite patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals, politicians, the media and the public in the fight against the disease. The organisation is currently represented in 21 countries in Europe and has been acknowledged as the voice of colorectal cancer patients in Europe. 

We welcome you to join us in our fight against this disease.

EuropaColon announces the 6th European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (ECCAM) 2013. EuropaColon launched ECCAM in the European Parliament in March 2008. Our 21 groups across Europe will be undertaking a variety of awareness raising activities and events during the month.

You can follow these activities on the EuropaColon community pages of this website.

EuropaColon will host the 2nd Colorectal Cancer Patient Conference (CCPC 2013) in Barcelona, Spain on 5th-6th July 2013.
The purpose of CCPC 2013 is to sustain EuropaColon's efforts to combat the disease in Europe to engage, educate, inform and support colorectal cancer patients alongside all relevant stakeholders. EuropaColon would like to thank the European Commission for its generous 50% grant for this very important meeting.
