Sarah DeBord

Postby brokenwings » Sun Jul 26, 2020 5:19 am

Sarah DeBord has left us. I don't know if she was active here (I've never seen her posting here...) but she was certainly a major advocate working for the CCA and Colontown...
She was definitely a familiar face in the CRC world and a great blogger...
The CCA posted this beautiful tribute on Facebook: ... 4618074710.

I didn't know her personally but I followed her blog and her experience with clinical trials... Unfortunately, once again, when SOC stopped working... she didn't have much time left.

I'm brokenhearted for her and her two boys...
DX 2019 Adenocarcinoma Sigmoid colon. PC + ovarian met.
Obstruction. Temporary colostomy.
Folfirinox + Avastin: 6 cycles. Scans: partial response.
Surgery (CRS + HIPEC) 04/29: too much disease, surgery cancelled. Right ovary removed.
2nd ptotocol: IP chemo (oxaliplatin) + IV chemo (Folfiri + Avastin). 8 cycles
10/31/2019: 11 hour-long Hipec + 6 weeks in hospital
12/30/2019: liver met
02/05/2020: reversal surgery. New peri mets discovered
March 2020: 5fu+Avastin
May 2020: fistula
Back to 1957: 5fu.

Here is a little more about this remarkable woman.

yes she had also guest blogged a few times on our ColonClub BLOG
Sarah DeBord guest blogs

I think we will all share sincere sympathies with her friends, family and fellow CRC warriors along this Journey.
She will be missed by many and her advocacy and work need to be continued.

I was saddened yesterday to hear of her passing. She spoke at one of the survivor events for Get Your Rear in Gear. Sarah was an inspiration and advocate. She will be missed. My condolences to her family.
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.
