My name is Kurtis and I'm 18 years old. I was diagnosed with stage IV signet ring mucinoid adenocarcinoma of the colon when I was 16,in April '09. I wasn't expected to live for long but here I am,nearly two years later. I had 12 rounds of FOLFOX and went into official remission a year after my diagnosis, April '10, but recently I had a recurrence in my kidney and now have 12 more rounds of chemo to do. I'm still going to graduate in a few months.I'm just looking for other young survivors to talk to.
