I recently attended a conference in Philadelphia with my 31 year old daughter with stage III breast cancer for young survivors of breast cancer, it was awesome and full of information. I would love to go to one on colon cancer as my husband is stage III and I would learn so much at a conference. If anyone has info please post. It's been a rough year and a half for them and me but if I emerge myself in the info I can help my family as well as myself. Thanks, Louise

Hi Louise,

CCA's 5th Annual Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Conference will be held just outside New York City at the Wyndham Newark Airport on September 30 - October 2, 2005. This event is intended for people newly diagnosed with colorectal cancer or dealing with advanced disease, long-term survivors, caregivers and friends. Nurses and other healthcare professionals are also encouraged to attend. CCA's Annual CRC Conference provides attendees with the most up-to date colorectal cancer information in a supportive and empowering atmosphere. Through the exchange of ideas and information with session speakers and other colorectal cancer survivors and caregivers, participants are able to find hope by strengthening their knowledge, realizing they are not alone and learning that options exist. CCA is proud to have the support of many of the nation's leading colorectal cancer professionals in the development of the conference agenda and as session speakers.

Conference Registration
Advance registration costs will be $35. To receive this rate, please register by September 1, 2005. After this date, registration fees will be $50. Registration fees include meeting materials, meals (breakfast, lunch and snacks on Saturday and Sunday) during the conference, and Friday night's reception.
