If you joined us for all the exciting events we had in June, then I hope you got some rest over the July 4th holiday weekend when you weren’t hanging out with family or watching fireworks! We’re keeping that energy up as we launch into July.

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 colorectal cancer (CRC) seeking access to resources and peer-to-peer support.

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. 

What to Expect

  • Learn about Fight CRC resources and support available.
  • Connect with people who are going through treatment, who can give tips on everyday issues, and listen to other’s experiences because they’ve been there too.

What Not to Expect

  • A meetup does not take the place of a doctor or a health care team.
  • This is not a case management or navigation program.
  • This is not a formal counseling session. When we say “meetup,” we mean just that -- we intend to meet our community members where they are, allowing them to steer the direction of the conversation, and dictate the topics discussed.

This is a brand new program that we hope will be a valuable resource to our community for years to come -- so we welcome you to join and afterward share your feedback with us on how we can make this something special!

Registration is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Starting in August these meetups will be held twice a month, so you will get additional chances to register every month!

Podcasts

Dropping this month on the Taboo-ty Podcast is our interview with Dr. Jaime Bruce, Child Life Specialist from Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. We discuss one of the most common questions after receiving a cancer diagnosis -- how do I tell my kids?

Through insights, stories, and sharing resources, Jaime will help you understand how to approach this difficult conversation and make it your own! This podcast will air July 26, but check out the Taboo-ty Podcast network on Soundcloud now to catch up on all the other great content!
