My Diagnosis Story---Stage 1 Colon Cancer

My story began in early April 08 when I began noticing blood in my stools. I was working with my gynecologist on other issues and saw his nurse practitioner. I fully expected an exam and some sort of explanation. I got neither. I was told I need a colonoscopy. What...I didn't want to hear that. I reluctantly scheduled the scope thinking they would find something like endometriosis on my bowel. WRONG...the Dr. came out and said he had found a mass, and two polyps. The mass he felt was malignant. He was right, pathology confirmed it shortly. I had no idea how advanced or what stage my cancer would be; I was prepared for anything, but physically my body wasn't coping well. I was nauseas for some time. I now know we all cope differently.

Beautiful wife and I

This is my story:

On Dec 2008, I went through surgery to remove a golfball-size tumor from my frontal lobe. Biopsy confirmed a Glioblastoma. Recovery from surgery is on track, no major side effects.
Additionally, I am having chemo ( 150 mg of Temodar a day) and radiation ( a first phase of 30 sessions) So far so good, eating as healthy as possible, exercising, positive. I am also very aware of my prognosis and my family (wife and three grown ups) are not taking these events in the best way. Any suggestions?
I know that I am far away to consider myself a cancer survivor; however, I will do my best to make that list.

Diagnosed with brain cancer at 18

My name is Kristy. I am 25 years old. I was diagnosed with brain cancer when I was 18 years old. The tumor is called 'Oligodroglioma'.
The doctors around my home town said I was just having migraines and would just give me shots and send me home but in a couple of hours I was back in the same shape again. Finally they ran CT scan and they said there was a mass. So they called me in for an emergency MRI the next day. Notice this was about 3 months after I had been going to these doctors (or hospital). The it showed a tumor. They set me up to go see a Neurosurgeon at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN.
