According to the American Cancer Society, lodging services can help reduce travel-related barriers to receiving the current standard of care for colorectal cancer, which is currently a "trimodal" regimen of radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery. One reason is that this approach is more likely to be available at a high-volume cancer center than a small general hospital. In recognition of this important finding, Moffitt’s supportive care specialists are prepared to make hotel recommendations for patients who would like to travel from Miami, FL, and elsewhere to receive colorectal cancer treatment at Moffitt.
