Mom finally was healed July 3rd. She has no more pain and no more cancer, thanks to the grace of God....I still am in denial and shock because this just doesn't seem real to me.......
I was told today that on a Colerectal website...a group is petitioning to have Pres. Bush change the recommended testing age for Colorectal Cancer from 50 to 40. I don't know much about this yet...but will soon.....I know that this cancer can be beat and is.....but we have GOT to be tested....it is getting more and more people every day...I will keep you update.

I AM SO SO SO SORRY. I know that you were there with your Mom through it all. I know you must still be in shock after all of this seemed to happen so fast. I hope you are doing as well as possible and have family to lean on. Once again I am REALLY sorry to hear your news about your Mom.

My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

I would love to find out more about convincing the insurance companies to provide testing at age 40. I live in Texas and I promise I will check on whatever I can about any provisions that will change the insurance requirements to allow better testing of this awful disease. It will save lives and we need to stick together and see that this is done!

Again, my deepest sympathy on your loss.
