Eye Contact Vision Center will be raising awareness and funding for Fight Colorectal Cancer


Bob Ceragno is the owner and optician here at Eye Contact Vision Center of North Bergen. In May 2015 after having a colonoscopy he was diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Because of early detection he is now a colorectal cancer survivor and activist. Thanks to the support of the town of North Bergen, local police and generous customers, he has been creating events in order to raise awareness and funding for research throughout the year.. 



March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month 

Because of Bob's personal experience, we created an annual event during the month of March (CRC Awareness Month)  to draw attention to the nation's 2nd leading cause of death of men and women combined~ colorectal cancer. We have been educating the community by letting them know that this type of cancer is preventable with proper screening. 


Fundraising starts with us! We will be donating annually $20 for every complete pair of  blue eyeglasses sold during the month of March and $10 for every pair of a different color. We have a collection box where customers can donate whatever they can and then they can always donate in honor or memory of someone on Bob's Fight Colorectal Cancer page; click donate button below.


We have raised over $13,000 over the past year; $2,288.39 of the total was raised during our March Campaign in 2016 and over $3,000.00 in 2017. We are hoping to beat that amount next year!  Thanks to all our customers and friends for supporting the cause, for your donations and purchases during the month of March.

Let's stay united in the fight! Together we will make a difference!

FightCRC has awarded us with April's fundraiser of the month in 2016

About Fight Colorectal Cancer

Fight Colorectal Cancer is a community of activists who find it unacceptable that colorectal cancer - a preventable disease - is the second-leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. In 2005, we were founded by survivors and family members who believed in making a difference. Since then we have grown to be a leading, national nonprofit based in Washington, D.C. known for our advocacy. Our team plays an important role in making medical information practical for survivors and their families and provides trusted resources that guide patients from diagnosis through survivorship. We unite the colorectal cancer community by empowering anyone impacted by this disease to share their story, advocate for better policies and get involved in the research process. We are one million strong and we won't stop fighting until there's a cure. Join us at FightCRC.org.
