Hi Laz

He was diagnosed this past March with stage IV colorectal cancer. It spread to his liver and 6 lymph nodes. His primary was non obstructing so he started right away on Folfox with Avastin. The oncologist wanted to do 12 treatments right from the beginning and then surgery at some point. He just finished his 10th today and is doing great! Im so proud of him :-)
