Hi my name is Jennifer... My mom was diagnosed on June 10th 2010 with colorectal cancer that has spread to her liver and lungs. She has a quarter size tumor on one lung and pin points on another. Her liver has two small tumors the biggest is also quarter size. her cancer in her colon did not obstruct so she has a stent in right now. My mom's first CEA was only 18 now it has gone down since last cea which was over a month ago was 15. Her last CAT scan showed all her tumors going through necrosis but no shrinkage. My mom has been taking vitman D, it works!!! I can't get her to rest even for a nap after chemo. She has more energy then me now.She is on a sugarless diet, it seems to be working. Stage 4 cancer can be cured...My older sister is a bio/chemist who works with cancer cells and associates her self with columbia, cambridge etc.... Cancer can be cured if the right treatment is done. She told me cancer is never thing that kills the paitent, mostly its infections from surgery and other stuff is that true?? Is there other people with stage 4 colon cancer who are either cured or living long? The first doctor said my mom would not be here for christmas : ( but it seems that the doctor was uneducated so thats why its always better to get a second or even fifth opinion.
