Nova Scotia Health's Cancer Care Program provides information for patients who have been diagnosed with colorectal cancer and their families.
We are interested in your feedback about these resources. Send your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org to help us improve resources for future patients.
The Canadian Cancer Society offers a free, confidential, telephone-based Peer Support program.
This program connects people living with colorectal cancer with a colorectal cancer survivor who is a trained volunteer. The volunteer listens, offers encouragement and shares ideas for coping – all from their unique perspective as someone who’s been there.
Family members can also talk with volunteers who have cared for a person with colorectal cancer.
