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.
