Patient Stories

Those Who Care Informally for People With Cancer Need All the Love and Support They Can Get – Our Guide Can Help!

Carers are an essential part of a patient’s life. For family and friends becoming a Carer is often sudden and unexpected. Digestive Cancers Europe has produced tools for people caring informally – a Carers Guide and the Carers Connect web portal.

Firstly our Carers Guide for people caring for those with colorectal cancer. We invite you to discover it and other resources to help Carers on this all-important journey. We are pleased to share the guide in the Finish, French, German, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish languages. They are available under ‘Colorectal Cancer’ on our publications page.

In May in Finnish, Polish and Portuguese we also have added our Carers Connect portal – a virtual space for CRC carers to meet, exchange and gain support. Discover more
