Patient Care & Community
No one should have to go through the process of colorectal cancer treatment alone. Chris4Life believes that colorectal cancer patients deserve the most comprehensive care available. Through COLONTOWN, our Chris4Life Fund, The Chris4Life Resource DVD, Wellness Guide, and our Patient Support Program we hope to make this difficult journey less so.
COLONTOWN is a place where patients and survivors can interact with others who have experienced the difficulties of colorectal disease.

To help alleviate some of the financial burden associated with colorectal cancer treatments, the Chris4Life Fund distributes $250 grants to qualified applicants in need of assistance. ** Not accepting application in 2014 **

The Chris4Life Colorectal Cancer Resource DVD is made possible through the Erica Paul Memorial Fund. The unscripted resource guide presents recently diagnosed patients with information from other patients, survivors, doctors, nurses, and social workers.

The Wellness Guide "navigating your journey" is full of helpful information for colorectal cancer patients.

Through our Patient Support Program, the Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation offers patients and their families access to an educational patient kit and a call-in line where they can receive additional information on treatment options, support programs, and financial services. The Chris4Life website also features additional support resources such as advocacy organizations, clinical trials, latest research and news, and medical flight programs.
