This is to encourage you all; I had surgery in July 2001 for stage 3 (C) colon cancer followed by Chemotherapy. I am alive and well after over 9 years in spite of some sinister polyps having to be removed at colonoscopy in the last few years. I stayed in touch with CSN for some years but then my time was required in other places. I am now 72 and still working. I am also now a prize-winning poet so life is good. (I'm actually not much of a poet but it sounds impressive!) I want you all to have all the good treatment and good results that I have had and so I wish you all every blessing. 2bhealed and Spongebob might remember me so I say a new hello to them both and to you all. vcavanagh
