C.A.S.U.A.L. (Colon Cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day is a program to raise awareness about the importance of screening and early detection for colon cancer in northeast Pennsylvania. The event takes place each year at the end of March - Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month. On this day, participants dress C.A.S.U.A.L. while wearing a specially custom t-shirt (long-sleeve or short-sleeve) to promote awareness and have a casual conversation about colon cancer.
In February of 2002, Helen Phillips was diagnosed with colon cancer. Less than six months later, the cancer took her life. In 2003, Helen’s family and friends approached the Cancer Institute to undertake a community awareness initiative to promote colorectal cancer screening - a preventative act which might have saved Helen’s life. In 2020, more than 6,000 individuals participated in C.A.S.U.A.L. Day. All proceeds stay in northeast Pennsylvania. 2022 marks 19 years of this program.
$20 donation for C.A.S.U.A.L. Day long-sleeve t-shirt or a C.A.S.U.A.L. Day performance short-sleeve t-shirt, $5 for a face mask and $10 for C.A.S.U.A.L. socks.
