Advice to Colon Cancer Patients

Kim Rogers sums up her advice to colon cancer patients

colon cancerA colon cancer diagnosis will turn anyone’s life upside down. It is an incredibly trying time not just for the person diagnosed but also their loved ones. Not only does the person diagnosed with colon cancer have to deal with the transition from spouse and parent to patient, but the family must also shift into caregiving and support roles.

It is important to find the positive in what anyone would consider a negative situation. Kim Rogers dealt with this firsthand after her husband was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in 2003. In addition to caring for two young children, Kim had to deal with the reality of caring for her husband. We have enjoyed bringing Kim’s story to you, and thank the Colon Cancer Alliance for putting us in touch with her.

Kim Rogers:  The advice I have to any colon cancer patient is that you can beat this, stay positive, do not give up, you can do it.
