Thanks for recalling your inspiring cancer adventure for us. I'm coming up on my 13th, after a rather routine and uninteresting experience with stage 2 rectal cancer.

Thank you for sharing your story. After I was diagnosed, over ten years now, your story gave me hope. You make me want to write out my own story and share it.


Diagnosed stage 3C signet ring colon cancer in May, 2008
14 out of 18 positive lymph nodes
Final treatment in November, 2008
NED ever since
I used to have an account under "Dori," but I've lost access to it.
