Though guidelines suggest screening starts at 50, researcher says it's premature to change them

My mother passed away two months ago from metastatic signet right cell cancer of the colon. When my mother was first diagnosed, one of the things that made this incredibly difficult process that much more disheartening was the almost total lack of good and reliable publicly-accessible information about this aggresive and rare form of colon cancer. The only information we could find were a handful of studies telling us only bad news.
My family and I have created a site to share and publicize infromation about this terrible disease. The site is available here:
Also, the site documents my mother's remarkable life and achievements and has links to contribute to a fund we have created in her name to raise funds specifically for fighting signet ring cell cancers.
Please visit the site, and definitely let me know if you have any information to add from your own experience or research. Thanks!

My 83 year old mother in-law was just diagnosed with colon cancer last Friday. Today the family got the pathology report and it said it is this kind of colon cancer. She is late stage just like your site says. Thanks for the information I have printed it out for my husbands father and siblings and will direct them to this site and your facebook page. She also has dementia so doesn't understand she has terminal cancer but maybe that is a good thing.
