Thursday, March 27 is is C.A.S.U.A.L. Day!


The Northeast Regional Cancer Institute will host the 11th annual C.A.S.U.A.L. (Colon Cancer Awareness Saves Unlimited Adult Lives) Day, a dress-down day to raise awareness about colorectal cancer. The event is held annually in memory of Helen Phillips.

Individuals and businesses interested in participating in C.A.S.U.A.L. Day can do so by selecting someone to serve as a team captain. Team captains will be in charge of ordering and distributing C.A.S.U.A.L. Day T-shirts for $15, and pins for $5. On March 27, dress “casual” and spread the word about colorectal cancer prevention and screening. All proceeds from C.A.S.U.A.L. Day support the ongoing efforts by the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute to raise colorectal cancer awareness and support colorectal cancer screenings for low-income and uninsured and underinsured individuals.

For more information or to participate in C.A.S.U.A.L. Day, call 1-800-424-6724 or visit
