I am 46 years old and was diagnosed with stage 4 small bowel cancer on January 31, 2011. Not only did they find 3 tumors on my small bowel, there was also a tumor on my ovary. I had surgery 2 days later in Pittsburgh, PA which consisted of a small bowel resection x3 and a total hysterectomy.
I became pretty depressed throughout this process but thru the help and support of my husband, family, and friends, I continue to get stronger and have a more positive attitude. I went thru 5 1/2 months of chemo which ended in September 2011. My recent scans were GREAT and I am officially in remission. Praise God!
I would appreciate continued prayers and support and/or stories from others who have gone thru or know someone who also has this somewhat rare cancer. Thank you and God Bless! xoxo to FLAGC!!
