Originally diagnosed on Feb 3rd, 2010 during a colonoscopy.  Stage IIIC rectal cancer diagnosis after surgery with follow up chemo and radiation.  I am now stage IV following a successful surgery on one lung met nodule in 2012.  I did not think I would make it this long (and my surgeon was very pessimistic after the initial surgery).  Happy to be alive and in fairly good health.  I wanted to post this especially for the newbies who are overwhelmed when first diagnosed.  There is hope.  Best wishes to all, especially to those going through active treatment as I write this.
