Alice Fontana, Colon Cancer Survivor
Alice just celebrated her own personal Independence Day. On July 4th, she became independent of chemotherapy and celebrated a successful round of treatment and the remission of her colon cancer.
Many times healthcare providers do not have time to address the emotional side of this intense treatment. Luckily for Alice, the personal support of a health navigator comforted her with helpful advice on how to deal with side effects and helped her find the strength to go on with her treatment. The support from her husband, Lou, of 33 years also proved to be life-saving in her fight with colon cancer.
