I was diagonosed with anal cancer a little over a year ago and am currently NED. At that time there wasn't a board for anal cancer so I came to the Colorectal board. Donna was one of the first people that responded to me. I am very sad to hear of her passing and my condolences go out to her family and to all of you. She was a very special person and may her memory be everlasting.

Once the anal cancer board was up and running I spent most of my time posting there. But I always continued to check in on the CRC board to see how everyone was doing.

I just want to say that you are all an amazing group of people. My heart breaks when I read of those that have fought so hard but sadly passed. My journey with anal cancer was difficult, but no where near what so many of you have had to endure. I'm not sure where I'm going with all of this, just trying to say that you are all an inspiration and even though I don't post on the CRC board I want you to know that I have kept all of you in my prayers.

Anal cancer is sometimes considered the same as rectal or colon, which it's not. The treatment is different. The cure rate is also good and the only reason I say that is because whenever I fall into a slump I tell myself that I need to snap out of it and realize tht so many others are going through so much more. I have told anyone that will listen that getting early colonoscopies is critical and that is because of all that I have learned from your posts.

God bless you, heal you and grant you continued strength. Thank you for being such an inspiraton.
