5-Year Stage 1 Survivor

Woo hoo! Five years ago today was my resection surgery for Stage 1 colon cancer. No sign of cancer since the surgery. I know that the 5-year survival rate is well over 90% for Stage 1, but for quite a while I kept thinking, "What's to say I won't be in the less than 10% that don't survive for 5 years?" Well, I wasn't. God had other plans for me, so I'm still around.
