Virginia Beach, VA
The Sentara Cancer Network is committed to improving health in Hampton Roads through raising awareness and early detection of colorectal cancers through participation in the ‘Don't Sit on Colon Cancer 5K.
The Sentara Cancer Network wants to help you learn about colorectal cancer, how you can treat it and how you can encourage your loved ones to be screened for it.
Reaching out to a team with the right tools
The Sentara Cancer Network takes a team approach, where a handful of experts recommend treatments. They consider all of the options available and closely follow the Commission on Cancer and National Quality Forum care guidelines.
Our health providers strive to be on the cutting edge of treatments, and accomplished their goal when they became the first in the area to introduce transanal endoscopic microsurgery. This minimally invasive technique removes certain tumors from the anus without cutting into the abdomen. Colorectal cancer survival rates at Sentara are above the national average, thanks in part to all of these efforts.
Registration opens at 7 am.
