Sarah DeBord

Sarah DeBord was diagnosed with metastatic colon cancer at age 34. In the years since, she has turned her diagnosis into a calling, and become an advocate for other young adults diagnosed with colorectal cancer and parents with young families facing cancer. She works as a communications and program manager for the Minneapolis-based Colon Cancer Coalition , volunteers her time with the online patient-led support community COLONTOWN , and blogs about her often adventurous experiences of living with chronic cancer at ColonCancerChick.com.
Sarah DeBord
One is meant to improve quality of life and the other is meant to care for end-of-life. Yet the two specialties of palliative and hospice care still continue to be confused not only by the patient, but also the provider.
Sarah DeBord
Why use one term over the other? It's not about exclusion, but rather inclusion and reaching all at risk for this disease-- which happens to be everyone.
Sarah DeBord
In the patient-centric world of oncology, let's not overlook who stands watch and gives without expecting anything in return.
Sarah DeBord
Your disease does not make you unworthy, because only the worthy will see past it.
Sarah DeBord
I've had many outward signs that let the world know I had cancer, so the latest addition to my wardrobe didn't exactly make it much more obvious.
Sarah DeBord
I vaguely knew what lymphedema was, and assumed it was something that only happened to breast cancer patients. But you know what they say about making assumptions.
Sarah DeBord
I never fully understood how ingrained my children were in my soul until I had to give serious thought to the end of my own life, and I knew I didn't want to face it without them.
Sarah DeBord
As cancer once again robbed me of the chance to make the holiday memories I had hoped for, it took a kid eating frozen pizza on Christmas Eve to remind me what really mattered.
Sarah DeBord
As patients, we need to remember that we may not wear the white coat, but we definitely wear the pants in the doctor-patient relationship
Sarah DeBord
When bad things happen to friends we care about, we often stand in silence because we don't know what to say.
