Six-Year CRC Survivor
Colorectal cancer survivorship is very individualized. Many survivors decide to 'pay it forward' and work to help other cancer patients through patient advocacy, volunteering, or patient mentorship. Other survivors may want to move past their cancer experience, begin a new career, and concentrate on family or travel. The GCCA and our member partners work hard to provide the tools needed for colorectal cancer patients as they transition to their new normal as colorectal cancer survivors.

Unmet Needs of Carers and Caregivers
The needs of caregivers are often overlooked. Many caregivers are so focused on caring for their loved ones that they often do not have time for themselves or prioritize their own personal needs. Caregivers are vitally important to the patients they care for, and we owe it to our carers to help provide practical solutions to support their needs.
