Colorectal Support Group

Everyone currently undergoing treatment and those who have been treated for colorectal cancer are welcome!  Being diagnosed with colorectal cancer confronts both patient and caregiver with multiple challenges in how to deal with this disease.  To fill the void for those who seek answers and to provide individualized support, a monthly meeting has been developed to assist in dealing with the emotional aspects of receiving a diagnosis of cancer.  Topics of interest such as Nutrition, Clinical Trials, and Symptom Management will be addressed.
