USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center Support Groups

"Saving Lives Through Patient Support and Advocacy."

It is critical for colorectal cancer patients to have a strong support network of family, friends and caregivers during their diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Coping with colorectal cancer is possibly the most challenging life event you will ever have to face. A strong support network will help you confront the difficult journey ahead by empowering you with knowledge and hope and helping ease the burdens of daily life. As you reach out, you will find that support comes from people in all aspects of your life. Loved ones, family, friends, coworkers, health care professionals, religious institutions and cancer support organizations are all important sources of emotional and educational support in the fight against Colorectal Cancer.
