I was diagnosed stage 3C in March/April 2013. I am still NED. I had a lot of lymph nodes involved (9 out of 22). I read this thread a lot when I was diagnosed to hear stories of hope, so here's mine.
Colon cancer Stage 3c (dx April 2013) at age 36
Resection and temp ileostomy (4/17)
12 rounds of FOLFOX (May-Oct 2013)
NED (August 2014)
