For all of us that suffer through this disease and for all the caregivers, mom, brothers, sisters, BIL, SIL,Gramma, Papaw,GG moms, GG paws...anyone associated with cancer....simply (1) state your avatar or initials or first name or nick name....
(2) your role in this disease such as patient, caregiver to sister, brother, dad, mom, etc.
(3) Then when you place your info in here look at the last person that posted (it should be on your reply just above the message your posting.....
(4) Whomever it is above you, keep them in your thoughts, vibes, sparks, whatever works for you for the rest of this weekend and all next week...its a simple goodwill gesture to let all know that someone is thinking about you especially......its gotta be good for the spirit to know that someone really is thinking of you each day.....maybe a private message simply thanking them for the extra post you made or that extra, message you sent or the extra ((((((((hug)))))))) they received.

Nice idea Buzzard!

I've been to Texas a few times and really liked it there...beautiful country and the people were real nice :) Good luck with your health, Kenny. I'm rooting for you!

My name's Janine and this is my first post. I'm from Oregon, living in Utah. Just diagnosed with colon cancer with liver mets two days ago. I'd had a "non-cancerous" tumor removed with colon resection 9/10 but got a surprise when I went for a checkup after a minor car accident...pain in my tummy is actually an enlarged liver with two big masses. Biopsy confirmed adenocarcinoma, doc says it's colon cancer. Very scared and don't know what lies ahead.

Age 47, diagonsed December 2010. Stage iv rectal cancer with two small mets to the right lung. The mets were both less than one centimeter and were removed January 2011 via a VATS procedure. Just started my first chemotherapy on February 8th. Scheduled for 6 treatments then evaluate to resect primary rectal tumor. Still can't believe all of this. I'm sure I will learn from everyone as I travel down this path!

Kevin here, diagnosed Dec 2010 with Stage 3 Colon Cancer (2 of 14 nodes and a clean CT scan)... CEA went up after surgery, MRI showed that it actually made it to the liver. Oops, make that Stage 4. Starting chemo today. Will be thinking about you (and all the rest of you good people), you'll do well if you stay positive and love life.

Hubby George diagnosed 3/09, Stage IV, mets (lots) to liver and lungs. Currently on second protocol of chemo (yuk).

Hang in there, chemo is not easy but very doable. I see you start chemo today, wishing you nothing but the best outcome. If you are starting Folfox, most have a very good response to this protocol.

Any questions about treatment and side effects just start a new thread and board will jump in with their experiences.

Take Care and Hang In There - Tina

I think of you and George often and hope the second chemo mix is working well.

Chris, my husband, was diagnosed with stage 4 in March of 2009. His liver met near the hepatic artery is not resectable & he is on Erbitux, CPT11 & avastin. Everything is stable & we are grateful for everyday. I feel blessed that Chris feels well and can continue to live a somewhat 'normal' lifestyle.

My name is Barb. I was diagnosed with stage 3C Colon Cancer about a year ago. I have had a sigmoid colectomy and went through 12 rounds of Folfox. I am currently having CT Scans, blood work and the dreaded colonoscopy to see how things are going.

Tausha....I have been thinking about you so much these past few days. Please know that tomorrow will be much easier than you are imaging. Bring a blanket, try to relax!

Is that your beautiful daughter in the photo? You both look so pretty!

Will be sending good thoughts and prayers your way.

Take Care,

Love

Barb
