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 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.

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.
Sarah DeBord
Having a health care directive in your medical records is one favor you can do your family, and in some of the most unexpected and unavoidable times, they will be grateful you have it.
Sarah DeBord
I would tune out or give an unsympathetic nod when I would hear people talk about anxiety because I didn't understand what it really was or how paralyzing it could be. That was until I got cancer.
Sarah DeBord
When I was first diagnosed, I searched for the stories that would give me hope in the darkness that surrounded me. Seven years later, I continue to pay it forward by putting my own story out there for the next person who needs it to find.
Sarah DeBord
Being a patient advocate comes in many forms, and not all of them require you to get out of bed to storm the halls of Washington.
Sarah DeBord
My son was visibly proud to show me off to his class that day, and I was secretly proud to send his classmates home to talk about poop at the dinner table.
