as some of you know i have been battling stage 4 colon cancer since September 2016. i finally got back on here to update those who don't know. so far been through surgery and 7 rounds of chemo. good news is the chemo is doing it's job,the cancer has shrunk still have 5 more rounds of chemo to go. it is a scary thought i had no warning or symptoms. luckily my appendix acted up and got me to see a doctor. my advice to anyone is get a colonoscopy! don't wait or say i'm fine or i don't want to know. i am only 45 years old so it can happen to anyone. i know they say wait till you are 50 + to get one, but if i would have waited i probably wouldn't have made that long or would have been to far gone. i would never wish this on anyone no matter what,it is a miserable disease. if you are doing something that may cause cancer please try to quit! it is not worth going through this misery. i am fortunate to be a strong active person some of the people i see at chemo make me feel so bad for them. please think of your health and your family I don't want to see anyone else have to endure this.
