Tools & Resources – Blue Star

Introduced on April 1, 2004, by the Roundtable, the Blue Star symbol represents the fight against colorectal cancer. The Blue Star represents the eternal memory of the people whose lives have been lost to the disease and the shining hope for a future free of colorectal cancer.

The star, merged with a ribbon to represent increased awareness, assumes a human shape. The Blue Star raises awareness about how to prevent colorectal cancer, the nation’s third-leading cause of cancer death in both men and women. The Roundtable encourages organizations to incorporate the Blue Star and the universal message that colorectal cancer is preventable, treatable, and beatable into their communications and awareness efforts.
