Eartha Kitt Fans Raise Money for Colon Cancer Awareness Month

Last week, we told you about the launch of a new Eartha Kitt comic book. This week we are very excited to bring you even more Eartha Kitt news - and this one has the power to have a positive effect on the health of a lot of people.

Colon cancer is caused from rampant cell growth in the colon or rectum (and sometimes in the appendix). It is the third most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in the world, and is often curable - at least, if it is caught early and before the disease has had a chance to spread beyond the confines of the colon.

The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA). is the leading national patient advocacy organization dedicated to saving lives through screening, access, awareness, advocacy and research. They are an active, caring community that provides hope and support to patients and their families, while increasing colon cancer screening rates and, by extension, survivorship.

March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month, and to help the cause, CARD.com has teamed up with CCA and Eartha Kitt’s daughter, Kitt Shapiro, to offer a very special incentive for Eartha Kitt fans: CARD.com is donating $10 to the Colon Cancer Alliance for every direct deposit customer that signs up for an Eartha Kitt Visa Prepaid card through April.

So sign up for a CARD.com Eartha Kitt Visa Prepaid CARD and honor the legendary performer who lost her battle with colon cancer, and help save the lives of others. All you have to do is sign up for Direct Deposit during the month of March or April, and CARD.com will donate $10 to the Colon Cancer Alliance as both a tribute to the legendary entertainer and in memory of her battle with colon cancer. Get your paycheck or federal benefits sent directly to your Eartha Kitt CARD, while making a positive impact in the life of someone with the illness and their families.

We feel it’s an easy way to make a big impact. Won’t you join us in the fight?
