There may not be one: I'm not aware of a specific charity that donates to all groups equally. Even defining "equal" is tough - equal in terms of number of cases of cancer per group means that men and women will need a greater percentage of the proceeds.

Not always: Colon cancer tends to not have any signs or symptoms when it is early (when it is easiest to treat). That is why screening colonoscopies are so important, to remove any polyps that may become cancer, and to directly look for cancers. Colon cancer can cause bleeding from the rectum, tiredness from anemia, stool changes, or abdominal pain. Other things can cause this too. Best to be seen if? S. ...Read more
