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. to date, we have raised over $84,081.86 during our March Colorectal Cancer Awareness month and No Shave November.  We are hoping to increase  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 and November.

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

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
