Hello I'm Lorraine. I'm a rectal cancer survivor. This is the first spring that I have been pain free in four years. Looking forward to getting on with my life. I would like to meet others who have gone through what I have. Finding it difficult to move forward and enjoy my life, feels like my feet are in quick sand and they won't move. Anyone know of any fun events for singles?

    Welcome to the semi-colons!

    Rectal stage III here. 2 years as of...WOW! tomorrow!!!!!

    What was causing your pain? I haven't had much since my last partial obstruction (sigh...#6) about 6 months ago. I'm an expert...all but one I cleared myself...lol!

    Fun events? How about the colonpalooza in Nashville in September?

    Hugs, Kathi

    Hello Lorraine,

    Welcome. I'm a colon cancer survivor. I was happy to read that, after four years, you're currently pain free. That must be a great relief. Although I've endured this journey for just over a year, I too find it difficult sometimes to move forward and enjoy my life. As far as the singles' life goes--where are you located? Are there any volunteer groups that you can join?

    The Colon Palooza would be a great place to start. There will be a few singles there who are survivors of CRC. Please come join us in Nashville in September (12 - 16) Check out previous postings for the details - or I'm sure Stacy will be posting another info message soon.
