Our mission is to provide colonoscopies for under-served men and women, raise awareness of colon and colorectal cancer, and be an advocate for coverage of colonoscopy testing through insurance.



Research shows that early diagnosis of colon and colorectal cancer is directly linked to better 5-and 10-year survival rates. Unfortunately, between the years of 2000 and 2004, only 41% of colorectal cancers in Georgia were diagnosed at an early stage. This statistic is thought to be due to suboptimal screening in vulnerable populations. During this same time period, only 21% of adults over age 59 reported having a fecal occult blood test (FOBT) in the previous three years, while only 41% reported having a sigmoidoscopy/colonoscopy.

Magnolia Foundation was formed to benefit under-served women and men in Floyd, Chattooga and Polk County, Georgia who are at high-risk for colon and colorectal cancer. The foundation's mission is to raise awareness of the disease, increase screening rates, and be an advocate for coverage of colonoscopy testing through insurance companies.
