Oct 2011 ..... my husband was diagnosed stage 3 colon cancer , I used to scour every online forum looking for stories of hope , I just thought when someone had cancer that was the beginning of the end .... I'm happy to report he's been cancer free ever since as far as we know according to scans ( they stopped after 5 yrs ) and regular cea testing ..... so really I just want to give back one of those stories of hope I desperately looked for almost 7 years ago , is he cured ? Who knows .... we would like to think so , I hope this helps who ever is reading in the same situation now , i know not every person and situation is the same but it can be beaten .
