I am a 65yr old male diagnosed with colon cancer on Oct. 16th, 2013. My mother died of colon cancer 7yrs ago and I had a colonoscopy every year since cause of the high risk factor due to her cancer being Lynch Syndrome and a family history of colon and breast cancer on her side. I had surgery on Nov. 19th on which the entire right side was removed along with about 4 inches of the left. Upon discovery on Oct. 16th everyone was sure they had discovered it early and would be only a small section removed. But, was stage 3A and into one lymphnode. I have just finished my third month of six months of chemo. I encourage everyone to be checked regularly. Thank you and may we all continue our fight.
