    Hi Everyone! It has been forever since I have posted but could not help jumping in on this one. I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer just before my 47th birthday. No family history. I had surgery and 6 months of chemo. So far so good! Just turned 50 in July and all tests continue to be negative. I have a colonoscopy yearly. The prep is the worst but hearing that Dr say I am cancer free is worth every minute of unpleasantness! It isn't fun and it isn't an easy subject to talk about but it is so very important. Just think of the weight you will lose during the "cleanse"...lol It was suggested that my children start at the age of 30 of course my kids are like..."no way"

    DDD thank you for bringing awareness to the subject. Colon cancer is one of the most preventable cancers but it is also known as a silent killer. Many people dont experience symptoms until it is too late. That is why the test is so very important.

    Hugs to all!
