The Hereditary Colon Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization serving the hereditary colorectal cancer community. Our vision is to be a beacon of light - extending life expectancy, enhancing life quality, and instilling hope in those diagnosed with hereditary colon cancer syndromes.
Being diagnosed with a genetic condition is unlike any other singular diagnosis. Patients often struggle to find care and information that is inclusive of all their needs. Standards of care exist for doctors when consulting with patients who are combatting common forms of disease expression, such as tumors, osteomas, and polyps. However, in between the major symptoms and prognoses lies a nebulous space, full of uncertainty. The Hereditary Colon Cancer Foundation strives to support patients by connecting them to educational and social resources so they, along with their loved ones, can be empowered to manage their quality of life. We welcome your suggestions and questions via email at info@HCCTakesGuts.org. Thank you.
