My 9th Cancerversary

Postby Kick'nAssCancer'sAss » Mon Oct 31, 2022 1:17 pm

When I was dx nine years ago today my first thought was how long do I have left. Shortly after I found this site and throughout my journey Colon Talk gave me solace and hope during my darkest hours.

If anyone would like to read my journey journal here is the link.

https://kickingasscancersass.blogspot.com/

Over13,000 reads to date and I still receive messages from all around the world. The power of the internet is truly amazing.

To all you newly diagnosed patients just remember cancer is not the death sentence like I thought it was.

I am living proof.
