Colon Cancer Fundraiser

6/25/2010:

Hoboken resident Fernando Uribe is trying to raise $1000 for Colorectal Cancer Awareness – and is having a fundraiser at McCarthy’s Pub (1st & Hudson) TOMORROW night!

McCarthy`s Pub hosts Colorectal Cancer Fundraiser

“The 1st draft beer is free to every guest and then it’s pay as you go! Free pizza will also be provided. The draft beers available are Blue Moon, Yuengling, Coors Light, Sam Adams & Smithwicks!

Any donations will be greatly appreciated and there will be a donation box in the back section of the bar!

There will be materials from the American Cancer Society available to promote colon cancer awareness.

Feel free to bring friends. There is a nearby parking deck, which is reasonably priced, especially if you’re there a few hours. I will be announcing potential drink specials and all proceeds will benefit Colon Cancer Research with the American Cancer Society. Thanks again for supporting this wonderful cause. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email: professorfuj@yahoo.com

Cheers,
Fernando Uribe

Together, we are making a difference!

Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer (colon cancer) is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimates for the number of colorectal cancer cases in the United States are for 2009:

  • 106,100 new cases of colon cancer (52,010 in men and 54,090 in women)
  • 40,870 new cases of rectal cancer (23,580 in men and 17,290 in women)

Overall, the lifetime risk for developing colorectal cancer is about 1 in 19 (5.2%). This risk is slightly higher in men than in women. Thus, I’m looking to provide information for my guests the evening of my event with brochures and pamphlets.

I’m looking to make a difference and raise awareness! Please join me and let’s do what we can to conquer Colon Cancer! Any donations are greatly appreciated. They are tax-deductible, so please consider donating on this safe and secure link. All proceeds will benefit colon cancer research.
