Cancer Institute Resources and External Colorectal Cancer Resources Available

Through every stage of your health issues – from the identification of a suspicious polyp through diagnostic testing or colorectal cancer treatment and on to survivorship – our team at the Cancer Institute at Gwinnett Medical Center is here to help you every step of the way. We know our patients by name – you are not a number at Gwinnett Medical Center – and we know you will have questions and concerns about your cancer and your care. We’re going to help you find what you need in terms of cancer resources, including specific information about colorectal cancer, because knowledge empowers each of us to be better advocates and more proactive about our health and our care.

 

Wellness Support during Colorectal Treatments

Often team members go above and beyond getting you access to helpful information – we help you adapt these resources to your personal needs to fight cancer now and after your treatment for improved wellness. For any of your individual concerns during your cancer diagnosis, treatment or survivorship, we have a team of cancer specialists to support your specific needs, including the following areas of support toward wellness:

  • Eat well: Speak to our registered dietitian or attend our Nutrition and Cancer Support Group
  • Stay physically active: Improve your mood and fight fatigue with a walk or attend our Yoga Class
  • Remember to laugh: Humor can help you relax and fight the stress of any illness
  • Talk to others: Try a support group or online community to connect with others
