THE STORY:

3 LITTLE BIRDS 4 LIFE wrote -

I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer on May 23, 2008.

I underwent surgery and 6 months of chemotherapy, and completed chemo in December 2008. I was in remission for just over 3 years. During a routine 6-month check-up, we found tumors in my lungs and some suspicious lymph nodes in my upper abdomen.

I started chemo in March of 2012, and am still undergoing treatment, In the past 17 months, I've undergone numerous rounds of chemotherapy, dealt with two reactions to chemo/drugs, had surgery, and most recently, been hospitalized for 14 days (including my birthday) for another reaction to a drug, which included the need for dialysis and plasmapheresis.

I haven't asked for a prognosis, because I know what the statistics are. But, I have of intention of being a statistic, so I'll keep fighting.
