Carressa’s Story (Colon Cancer)

Carressas_story_colon_cancer_LRFor two-plus years I told doctor after doctor that something was killing me.  I was told many different things, from it’s anxiety to it’s all in my head. On December 7, 2013, I was told I have Stage 3 Colon Cancer.  My colon had an intussusception and that’s how I found out finally why I felt so bad. I even asked a doctor for a colonoscopy and the doctor told me I was too young. I just finished round 12 of my chemo today and I am so ready to LIVE again! Carressa Oklahoma Submitted 08/04/2014
