The helpline, a partnership through Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) and the Cancer Support Community (CSC) is offered to colorectal cancer patients and their families to access real-time support when they need it. 

The Cancer Support Community runs a call center (Cancer Support Helpline) staffed by licensed mental health professionals and resource specialists who are experts at providing information and referrals to local, regional, and national resources, distress screening, decision-support counseling, and short-term counseling services. 

"I never really thought of myself as a helpline user – we just get through it, right? But, there were a couple of questions I was wrestling with, so I called the helpline, found a real person who listened, understood where I was coming from, and came up with some really thoughtful ideas. Now, I’m sharing the number with friends in the community."

Scott Wilson, Stage IV survivor and Fight CRC Mission Champion, VP
