My mother was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer with Mets to the Liver and Lymph nodes at the age of 50. She was told on February 14 (Happy Valentines Day!) And was diagnosed the very next day.. She was given a range of 6-8 months and died to the day, 6 months later, August 15,2012. I would like to write about hope and how people can beat this disease but that is not my experience. All I can say is, its horrible. It’s the worst thing I have ever experienced in my life and to watch your own mother die a painful death at such a young age I wouldn’t wish on anyone else. With that being said! GET CHECKED! Know what is up your butt! Do not go passed 50 for ANY reason, and do not go passed 40 if you have family history of it!!! The only way to get a good chance at fighting this thing is to not let it get so far along that there is a very slim chance! I miss my mother, its been 10 months and I still think of her daily. I am sure this will get easier but I will never forget to get check as soon as I turn 40, sooner if they allow me.
