Hi there!   

I’ve just been diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer and I don’t know what to do.

Welcome to the COLONTOWN community! Find other Stage IV Patients in the Four Corners Facebook group, Bostonians in Beantown, people with lung metasteses in Lungston, and craft-a-holics in Craft 4 Healing. We’re happy to meet you.  

It’s good to know there’s people out there like just me, going through the same things I am. Thank you!
