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
I have two perspectives as I look at clinical trials: as the patient needing one and as an advocate encouraging patients to enroll in them. But how can I encourage someone to do something that I personally find so frustrating?
Sarah DeBord
Since being diagnosed with cancer, I can't walk into a grocery story without hearing B.B. King sing "The Thrill is Gone." My relationship with food changed, and I often wonder if we'll ever be able to fall in love again.
Sarah DeBord
Another attempt to help by my friends only brought more work and stress to our home.
Sarah DeBord
The expenses of cancer far extend what is covered by insurance, and the damage it can do can forever alter the life of a young adult with cancer.
Sarah DeBord
As much as patients look forward to the day they can ring the bell or hear they have no evidence of disease, it can also mean they will be sent out on their own to sort through life with the long-term damage of cancer.
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.
