WHY WE'RE FUNDRAISING WITH THE JIMMY FUND WALK TO FIGHT CANCER

The Young-Onset Colorectal Cancer Center is among the first centers in the country dedicated exclusively to the care of colorectal cancer patients diagnosed under the age of 50. We understand that a diagnosis of colorectal cancer can be overwhelming at any age; for individuals under the age of 50, it can also feel quite isolating. As part of the Colon and Rectal Cancer Center at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center (DF/BWCC), our specialists provide expert care and support throughout all phases of diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship, knowing that young adults with colorectal cancer face unique challenges. We encourage you to visit our website for more information about what we do at the Center.
