That's quite amazing!
I think you'd need to contact the hospital where she was treated and get her paperwork to prove it was colon cancer and what Stage. I'm assuming it was Stage 1 to 3 and hadn't spread to other organs.
Truett Cathy, founder of Chick fil A had colon cancer at the age of 38 and lived to be 93. That's 55 years. Your mom has him beat by a mile, tho. Mr. Cathy said they told him he was going to die, even after major surgery and treatment. He did the same as your mom. He got up and went home, got busy with his family and building an empire and never had a recurrence.
Congrats to your mom!
