The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) announced that famed fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo would be honored during its national conference, Family Matters: What Every Family Needs to Know About Colon Cancer, in Denver, Colorado on Thursday, June 23.
Valvo, a colon cancer survivor, is being presented with the Making Colon Cancer Fashionable award for his work to help promote Colon Cancer Alliance's national Dress in Blue Day. He donated a deep blue gown from his Black Label Collection for a fundraising auction during March's Colon Cancer Awareness month, and a signed fashion sketch, which was printed on a limited edition Dress in Blue Day t-shirt. All proceeds from both items directly benefited colon cancer awareness programs. He also played a key role in Boehringer Ingelheim's awareness campaign by serving as a passionate spokesperson for the cause.
