Hi everyone, I am new to the cancer board and I have read some of the postings, they have all been helpful. I am a 5 and 1/2 year survivor of colon cancer! I've had chemo, radiation and surgery as most of you have talked about. I'm glad I found this board! Thanks for being on it.

    Welcome. Five and 1/2 years. That's great. I bet you can offer folks here lots of advice. We always have lots of questions.

    Take Care,

    New to the Board!
    Hey there gillendm ... welcome to the board! Everyone has to be new at least once , but how wonderful that you are New AND you are already a 5 1/2 year survivor!! Unfortunately, most "newbies" when they come here are new to cancer and are terrified (understandably so), so it's actually lovely to meet a newbie who has been there, done that :)

    Plenty of chairs and comfy couches around, so pull up one that looks like you will like it and join the gang!

    Welcome aboard!!
