Hi everyone. I'm new to the message board and look forward to our interactions. I'm a stage IV colon cancer survivor. I was diagnosed in September 2004. I've been through two rounds of chemotheraphy, multiple procedures, and three major surgeries. I look forward to receiving valuable information, opinions, and experiences.

    Hello, and welcome to the message board.

    I've found this site a great resource: to ask questions, share experiences, and gather opinions. Furthermore, being in the company of (virtual or not) people undergoing similar experiences is a relief.
