Colon cancer doesn’t only affect those who are diagnosed with it. The disease leaves lasting effects on family members and caregivers. For that reason, we started the Colon Cancer Coalition Caregiver Network. It was created in collaboration with Jenny Snow Ashbrook who lost her brother and former Press Secretary for President George W. Bush, Tony Snow, to colon cancer.
The Caregiver Network provides financial and emotional support to families and caregivers while a loved one is in treatment for colon cancer and resources to those who have lost a loved one to colorectal cancer.

Who is a caregiver?
We define a caregiver as an unpaid family member, friend, neighbor or other selfless, wonderful person who provides unceasing care for a loved one. If you are a caregiver for someone who has been diagnosed with or died from colon cancer, our online community is here to support you.
