Hey you all. I do not post here often and it has been quite some while since I have posted. I, myself, do not have colon cancer but my precious mom dies at the age of 46 of it. I am 29. We just realized that a family friend of the age of 47 has been given 2 months to live. SHe also has colon cancer. She went through torture with her chemo. Developed a blood clot and almost dies and then got through that just to realize that she had 2 tumors on her ovaries. They did surgery today to remove those and discovered it was everywhere. Now the poor woman has to deal with the pain of the surgery and the fact that she will die soon. All you ever here about is the advances that they are making in cancer treatment yet all I ever seem to see is death reasulting from either the treatments or the cancer. It makes me so mad. I am going to have my first colonoscopy nest month. I pray that all goes well. Thanks for hearing me vent! I read all of your post everyday and I love the attitude all of you people( especially Spongebob)! You are all special people!
