Side by Side, NFP
At age 57, Ted Regan was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. The diagnosis was simultaneously shocking and not unexpected—Ted's mother had passed away from the disease and he knew he should have been screened for it earlier. The problem? Insurance wouldn't cover the procedure he needed, so Ted put it off, a decision that would ultimately have devastating consequences for him and his family.
That experience led his youngest daughter, Katie L. Regan, to found Side by Side, NFP, a nonprofit dedicated to raising awareness about colon cancer and the importance of regular screenings. Through events that range from formal galas to fun, community-focused bean-bag competitions, the organization unites individuals who are passionate about educating the public about the disease, which is highly treatable when caught early, and funding research to someday find a cure.
