Colon Cancer Program
Help for Colon Cancer Sufferers and Their Families
This program, part of the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute at Cedars-Sinai, was established by entertainment personality Sharon Osbourne following her own battle with colon cancer.
Inspired by the superlative care she received, Mrs. Osbourne joined forces with Cedars-Sinai's renowned surgeon Dr. Edward Phillips to harness key resources needed to help other colon cancer sufferers in the community.
