Help us prevent Colon and Rectal Cancer through Awareness and Free Screenings. We have 3 Doctors who have pledged their time to perform back to back colonoscopies! Now we need to raise the funds to create awareness!

CLICK ON THE ORANGE JOIN GROUP BUTTON TO THE RIGHT TO JOIN OUR CAUSE. 

Did you know that Colorectal cancer is the second-largest cancer killer in America, right behind lung cancer. However, if every man and woman 40 years or older received a screening, at least 90% of colon and rectal cancer could be prevented. This is why we need your help. We need to get the message out to everyone that colon and rectal cancer is a PREVENTABLE, TREATABLE and BEATABLE disease!

In partnership with the Florida Hospital we have created an Awareness Campaign to prevent this disease in memory and honor of Robert B. Holley who passed away from this disease in the Fall of 2008. No one has to live with this disease and that is our mission!

Your donations through this web site will be sent directly to the ABB Foundation and you will receive a receipt with the EIN # for charitable giving. The ABB Foundation will match your donation dollar for dollar and will write a check to the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute. The Florida Hospital will use this donation to create an educational campaign that will have Bob Holley's story, facts about this disease, different ways to prevent this disease and contact information for the Florida Hospital Care Clinic where the first 10,000 callers will receive an at home pre-screening kit. The campaign will also sponsor colonoscopy's for some patients who are not insured.

Through this campaign you are able to double your donation with ABB's matching funds!

As more and more people become aware and take the proper steps to preventing this disease they shall join the Colon Cancer Crusaders List and through time we shall diminish this disease!
