I came to COLONTOWN as primary caregiver for my sister, Pam, who was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer in 2016. She endured numerous chemotherapies, surgeries, procedures, and hospital stays with a smile on her face and with a world-famous thumbs up. COLONTOWN became Pam’s family. She loved meeting fellow patients and caregivers, both online and in person, and they certainly loved her. Sadly, Pam succumbed to her illness in December 2018.
COLONTOWN became as important to me as it was to Pam in the years I spent researching treatment options and connecting with other caregivers. I became the host for our liver metastases group, and then Community Leader for all the neighborhoods providing resources for metastases. I am excited to serve the community as the Caregiver member on the COLONTOWN Cabinet.
