"At Sanofi Oncology, our mission goes beyond developing innovative medicines and ensuring their availability," said Debasish Roychowdhury , M.D., Senior Vice President and Head, Sanofi Oncology. "Through initiatives like today's proclamation ceremony, we're educating patients and the public about various cancers, prevention, and treatments, to ultimately promote a healthy way of life in the Cambridge community."

About Colorectal Cancer

In 2010, 142,570 new cases were diagnosed and 51,370 people died from colorectal cancer in the United States. When colorectal cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, the five-year survival rate is nearly 90 percent. However, when the cancer is not diagnosed until a late state, the five-year survival rate is closer to 10 percent. In the past ten years, colon cancer screening rates have increased, but rates still remain low, especially among the uninsured. According to the American Cancer Society, men and women should begin screening for colon cancer at age 50. If the entire population was screened at that age, the number of colorectal cancer-related deaths would be cut in half.

About the Colon Cancer Coalition /Get Your Rear in Gear

Get Your Rear in Gear® events are presented nationally by the Colon Cancer Coalition, a non-profit organization based in Minneapolis. The events are 100% volunteer-driven in communities throughout the United States. The Colon Cancer Coalition distributes funds raised at Get Your Rear in Gear events back into local communities for colon cancer education, prevention, and screening. By making the words colon, colorectal and colonoscopy a part of the everyday language, we believe we can overcome the fear and decrease deaths from this largely preventable cancer.
