Your Source for Colon Cancer Support
Fairfield Medical Center and our Cancer Resource Center provide a vast array of support programs, resources and care for our patients with colon cancer. These programs and resources can help you and your family address issues that you may face as a result of your cancer diagnosis or treatment.
Fairfield Medical Cancer Resource Center
The Fairfield Medical Cancer Resource Center is open to any cancer patient and their support people. Educational classes, support services and retail products are offered to reduce stress and ease recovery and coping processes. The center is staffed Monday through Friday (or by appointment) by an FMC coordinator and volunteers, many of whom are cancer survivors.
There are a variety of financial resources available to those who qualify, including the Fairfield Medical Center Foundation and TWIGS One Cancer Care Fund. Members of your oncology team will work collaboratively with financial aid personnel to determine what individualized assistance is available to you.
