You become a cancer survivor the day you’re diagnosed. Living with cancer means you take control of your health. While life may never be the same, there’s a “new normal” that awaits you. Sometimes the topics that come up may seem “taboo,” but it’s important to know the issues you face are normal, and there’s help available.
Each month medical experts lead our webinars to offer insights about a variety of topics within colorectal cancer. We’ve covered topics like oral chemotherapy, diet and nutrition, side effects from chemotherapy, family history, palliative care, psychosocial health and more. Register to attend an upcoming webinar. Past webinars are archived and available in our resource library.
