40% of humanity will develop cancer during their lifetime.
(50% of men and 33% of women)

Unlike many other diseases, the battle against cancer is being lost

Mortality rate for cancer has barely been reduced in the last 30 years. In other cases, like heart diseases, the mortality rate has been deeply reduced.

Detecting CRC early saves lives.
Detecting pre-cancer prevents cancer.

The timing of the detection makes all the difference.

We are losing the battle against CRC cancer because it is detected late

Only 4 out of 10 are detected early.
Partly due to low screening rates.
