Today I went with my youngest son who is now a senior in high school to look at a college for Sept. He was only 14 and a freshman in high school when I joined this colon cancer club. I have been through so much in the 2 1/2 years since my diagnosis of stage 3 rectal cancer.

To all the newbies --- it does get better. I am cancer free at the moment, but I know that could change. My next scan is 11/3 and I find out the results of my genetic testing on 11/18. I am anxoius about both. I remember when I was diagnosed I came to this site and wanted to hear that I was going to get through it. Well I have, and you will get through it also.

To everyone still struggling with this terrible disease, I think of you all often and keep you in my heart and prayers.

Well said Maureen. Congratulations on meeting NED.
mmmmm.....food for thought here. It may well be time and worthwhile that we start a new topic for our friends here who are now NED.
I think I will do just that!

Hey Maureen, How are you?

We are doing the college thing too. My how time flys! Getting anymore gray hairs, yet? My daughter gives me a bunch everyday she doesn't fill out her applications!!!!! :)

Stage 3 here, too. NED ROCKS!!

Barb ( who was in a very dark and lonely place just a few months ago. ( 1year and 4 months). This place saved my soul and my mind. I only hope I can help someone as these great people helped me.

Hi Maureen,
You and I are not far apart on a few things in this journey!....we just got back from Parents' Weekend, visiting my son who is a freshman, and was a junior when I was diagnosed. We did some college visits right after chemo ended, and I was so overcome with emotion at times: grateful to come as far as I had, hoping the future would hold good things for us. A year plus later, it has all worked out so far. I have my annual colonoscopy next month, and my 6 month CT scan. My appt last week was good, with a low CEA continuing. I also know this can change at any moment, but for now life is good and I am thankful for every day.
This site has been a godsend for me; knowing so many people here has made the whole experience so much more managable.
Continued good wishes to all, Judy
