Mr. Sorensen

Colon Cancer Survivor

Mr. Sorensen

He is well known around the Memorial City clinic as "Chemo Claus," due to the fact that every year around the holidays, Mr. Sorensen dresses up as Santa Claus, bringing joy and plenty of smiles to our patients and staff members.
Mr. Sorensen was kind enough to share his story with us that started in 2011 when he began fighting colon cancer with Dr. Campos. In 2016, his cancer reappeared as metastatic colon cancer. Mr. Sorensen works hand in hand with Oncology Consultants along with Dr. Kopetz at MD Anderson. The collaboration between the two facilities have aided Mr. Sorensen greatly. "I am able to get the best of both worlds." Oncology Consultants provides the ease of familiar faces and the personable touch and care at each and every treatment while MD Anderson paves the way to cutting edge technology.
Mr. Sorensen emphasizes the importance of getting a colonoscopy routinely. He was advised to get a colonoscopy at the age of 50, but failed to get one. Two years later, he was diagnosed with colon cancer.
"Play an active role in your cancer, be involved." Mr. Sorensen has provided his own personal touch to fighting his cancer. He has enhanced his diet along with incorporating exercise to his everyday schedule. Also, Mr.Sorensen stays up to date on the latest research within the cancer industry. He once attended the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) in Washington D.C (consisting of doctors, researchers and individuals from all over the world) as means of gaining more knowledge about his cancer and the best methods of treating it.
Thank you Mr. Sorensen for sharing your story, together we will overcome cancer.
