Advice for Patients Recently Diagnosed with Colon Cancer

Gloria says if patients have a more positive approach to life and treatment they will have a higher quality of life. “Find reasons to be grateful,” advises Gloria. She has undergone over 54 rounds of chemotherapy, ten rounds of radiation, and three surgical procedures since being diagnosed with colon cancer in 2010 at age 28. Here she offers advice for patients recently diagnosed with colon cancer.

“Dig deep. Find your courage within, and be confident and positive,” Gloria Borges says to newly diagnosed colon cancer patients after her own long battle with the disease. She believes it is important for patients not to let fear, anxiety, and sadness blind them throughout the process.

Gloria’s positive attitude and aggressive approach to her treatment serve as inspiration for many colon cancer patients. Her desire to beat colon cancer has manifested itself in the formation of her non-profit foundation dedicated to finding a cure, The Wunder Project.

Gloria is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the The Wunder Project, whose mission is to fund research and set in motion all of the platforms necessary to finding the cure for colon cancer and creating the blueprint for curing other cancers.
