Colin Autry, a 17-year-old cancer patient from Elk Grove, likened it to a life of solitary confinement, cocooned in a hospital room and cut off from the usual life of a high school senior – his cell phone and television screen the only connections to friends and the outside world.

“When they told me I was going to be in an isolation room for six to eight months, that scared me pretty good,” said Autry, who began his long hospital stay in October at Kaiser Permanente Roseville Medical Center.
