Introduced in early 2023, the Diplomats program recruits COLONTOWN community members to spread the word about the education, support, and connection offered by our programs.
In its first year, more than 150 Derrière Diplomats put on their COLONTOWN shirts and delivered resources for newly diagnosed patients and their care teams at over 170 locations in the US and Canada. Who better to explain what makes COLONTOWN special than its members?
Diplomat Denise on her way to deliver materials at her local cancer center. Participants receive:
- kits of introductory materials for patients and care teams
- a chemo port shirt to wear in their infusion center – going where patients are in a way only other patients can
- Diplomat stickers for their infusion day tumblers, their car – wherever they’d like to spread the word!
