Healed enough to start researching.....

I was a caregiver for my sister who died of colon cancer three years ago. I have healed to the extent that I need to know exactly what kind of cancer she had and why it attacked her. I recall her oncologist saying it was a very rare form of colon cancer called A-Rolla. Does anyone know about this cancer or where I can start my research?

If she had surgery for the cancer, the pathologist at the hospital she was treated at would be a good place to start. When I had my tumor removed, the pathologist was the one who determined the type of tumor I had and determined how much it had spreed to the lymph nodes. Then the oncologist determined what chemo I received and for how long from the reports he got from the pathologist.

Hope this helps you out.
