In March, we launched the NEW Provider Finder tool. The Provider Finder is a list of colorectal cancer healthcare providers curated from Komodo’s technology. Patients can search for an oncologist, radiologist, surgeon, or gastroenterologist. For patients seeking second opinions, our extensive list of healthcare providers furnishes options that align within the travel areas you select.

Your Guide in the Fight Resource Meetups

Fight CRC’s Your Guide in the Fight Resource Meetups are free online gatherings for people affected by CRC who are seeking access to resources and peer-to-peer support.

This month, Your Guide in the Fight meetups will take place on April 14 at 12pm ET and April 26 at 4:30pm ET.

Whether you have just been diagnosed, are receiving treatment, or are supporting someone who is facing CRC, these meetups are a safe and reliable place to talk to people who have similar experiences to yours while learning about resources available to you from Fight CRC and partners alike. No one fights alone.
