Actualy,2 months before my 40th birthday I was diagnosed with rectal cancer. I needed to have a colostomy and thought that was the end of the world. It has been 8 months since being diagnosed and I have had chemo, radiation, surgery, and now back to chemo. The drs recently found a tumor near my spinal chord and I am now going for radiation again, followed by chemo. I have been strong throughout but lately it has been getting difficult to keep it together.
