Three extraordinary women will be recognized for their valuable leadership contributions during the Breaking Boundaries Awards Dinner and Reception as the culmination of the C3 annual "Call-on Congress" advocacy initiative during National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in March. Representatives of C3 and renowned thought leader in oncology, Dr. Richard Goldberg, associate director of The Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of North Carolina, selected the award recipients.
