I'm glad you took the courage to write your first post. It will get easier and easier and soon you will be telling your closest family and friends very little and pouring your heart out to strangers. Lisa

I think if I showed your picture to my husband I could convince him to start reading and posting here.

Me and you aren't "strangers" anymore - are we?


Erin, welcome aboard - I'll take a stab and say that you're the one on the left of the picture?

You have joined a wonderful group of people. Lots of support and wisdom to be found here. So sorry to hear your diagnosis and wish that you didn't need to be here. Feel free to tell us as much or as little about yourself as you would like.

I am caregiver to my husband who was diagnosed with stage IV signet ring cell colon cancer in April. He is 58 and just completed six months of chemo--3 months of Folfox and 3 months of Folfiri. This is his second encounter with cancer as he had Hodgkin's disease when he was 24.

Again, welcome, and hope to see you around here frequently!

welcome to the board. Like the others said, there are a great group of people here. This board has helped keep me sane many times since my diagnosis this January. Sorry you have a reason to be here but thank God for this place to come and pour out your feelings to the only people who know exactly how you feel. I find great comfort here as I'm sure you will.

Hi Erin,
I must say you are very beautiful! I have been on the board since June of this year or should I say since my dx. I do find this site to help me. When i can't or just don't want to talk to family, I turn to this side of family who REALLY understands and are very good listeners! I am sorry that you have had to join us but just know that we are all here for you good or bad.

Hi Erin, sorry your are here. You are way too young for this. But as everyone has said, we are glad you found us. The people are amazing and you can vent, get great information, and have a support group that will hold you up when you need it. They will make you laugh when you think you cant. and in turn you will end up doing the same for someone else. So hang on we are all here for you,
Hugs, Judy
