If all this virtual support could pull you through, you'd be dancing and kicking up your heels right now. So many people are thinking of you, pulling for you, praying for you.
Praying for comfort and strength for you, and wisdom and skill for your whole medical team.

After 8,5 years living with CRC, Pete passed away on 17/4/2012. We had lots of quality time, we said our goodbyes! I am at peace because he doesn't suffer anymore! He is now better off with the Lord! We will surely miss him very very much!!

Jess, wishing you all the best.
Went in for surgery for a cyst on my bladder, and they found colon cancer growing on the outside of the colon. Got to have two surgeries at the same time! Stage 3, one node involved.
