The Chris4Life Colorectal Cancer Resource Guide
This guide is a multi-media resource DVD which is designed to provide recently diagnosed patients with information from other patients, doctors, survivors, nurses, and social workers. These individuals speak directly to the patient from their personal experiences to provide answers and insights into what the patient may expect during their treatment and care. This one of a kind resource helps the patient navigate through subject matter associated with a recent colorectal cancer diagnosis. It addresses what the patient can expect physically as well as the emotional, personal and day-to-day issues from the viewpoint of those who have been touched by the disease personally.
If you would like to help us get this DVD shipped out to cancer centers, hospitals, doctors offices and patients free of charge or you would just like to make a donation please CLICK HERE.
