Is there a board like this but for colon cancer?

A friend was recently diagnosed and is having a hard time. I don't think she knows anyone with colon cancer and my experience is very different than hers as I didn't have chemo, even. I've found these boards so meaningful and useful and I wonder if anyone knows of a similar resource for colon cancer? Or has other resources to recommend?

    The American Cancer Society has a Cancer Survivor 's Forum for nearly every kind of cancer. I'm on the kidney cancer one and there are great people there.

    Salamandra, Health Unlocked has cancer patient message/discussion boards and I did a quick check and see some for colon cancer. It's so kind of you to post on your friend's behalf - finding support on here and having other people who understand what I am going through has been incredibly helpful. My friends in family are wonderful but no one "gets" it like those that share in our reality.

    Yes, it's called “The Colon Club" and the forums are under “Colon talk”
