I have been diagnosed with the rare signet-ring cell carcinoma in my colon about two weeks ago. I am anxiously looking for some survivors out there and a buddy or two to go through this with. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks ahead.

JADot -

Go to: http://www.colondar.com click on the buttons for model info and go to Anne (I don't have my copy handy so I can't tell you what month she is - blonde, laying down in the water) Anyway, there will be a link that you can contact her via e-mail. If memory serves correctly, Anne also has the signet ring cell carcinoma. Hope this helps.

Hi Bob:

Thanks for the pointer. I didn't find the mention of signet ring but found some very inspiring survival stories. Colondar - what a scream! I was profoundly touched by the picture of that big incision.

Hi Terri:

Thanks so much for replying to my post. I am doing great recovering from my surgery. Tomorrow I will have the stiches out. Two of my friends will bring dinner to help celebrate.

Terri - Let's beat this thing together! My thoughts are with you for your big day on 1/17. Let me know how it turns out. My mom is a geneticist and she has a lot of colleagues/students in cancer research. They are all out there digging up information for me and you right now. I'll share what I know about new research/treatment for signet ring.

Take good care!

seems like you have found several on here that have it... i just want to lead you to one more person. at the same place you found the colandar (the colon club) there is the colon talk section which has a great forum and there is a member there named Dori that also has the signet cell. I am confused though.. looks like you have been a member for quite awhile and was first diagnosed in 2005?? is this a new cancer in your colon or a recurrence?? What did you have the first time around??
