My how time flies.
In January of 2015, we kicked off our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Kiel Colon Cancer Foundation, in memory of our Founder George Kiel’s mother – Debra Kiel – who passed from colon cancer at the beginning of 2014. At the launch of KCCF earlier this year, we intended to raise awareness of colon cancer and generate funds for colon cancer research, education, advocacy, health services and social support programs. We targeted young adults – seeing that colon cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in both men and women in the United States – and colon cancer rates are rising in young adults.
Here’s a look at how we set the tone in Year 1 – 2015.
