My Colon Cancer Coach is designed to help people affected by colon cancer better understand their disease and treatment options.
By answering a few simple questions about your tumor stage, you will receive a report outlining treatment options that may be appropriate for patients like you. You can share this report with your doctor to help chart a treatment course.
The website questions are guided by the expertise of Richard M Goldberg, MD, who is on the Medical Advisory Board of Fight Colorectal Cancer and a volunteer with My Colon Cancer Coach.
My Colon Cancer Coach was created by Genomic Health with support from the non-profit advocacy group Fight Colorectal Cancer to help people diagnosed with colon cancer better understand their potential treatment options, and highlight specific questions that they may wish to discuss with their healthcare team. In return for its assistance, Genomic Health has provided Fight Colorectal Cancer with a charitable grant to run its educational programs. The information provided on this site is not medical advice and is not intended to replace the valuable counsel provided to you by your physician. Only you and your doctor can determine the treatment course that is best for you.View Thread
