Colon cancer is a common disorder which affects thousands of people each year. There are new mechanical and molecular technologies recently developed to treat colon cancer at all stages. Amir Bastawrous, M.D., will review what patients might expect when diagnosed and how these new treatments may affect them and their outcomes.
The Swedish Cancer Institute offers a variety of support groups. The groups provide an opportunity to meet with others having experiences similar to your own. Each group is facilitated by an experienced Swedish Cancer Institute support group facilitator and are open to all people in the community.
Support group members experience and receive:
- Practical information
- An understanding of diagnosis and treatment
- A safe and caring place to share feelings and learn self-care skills
- A place to develop coping skills and discover how one lives life fully in the midst of cancer
