My name is Laura and my father was recently diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer on September 17, 2010.
The diagnosis came after a routine colonoscopy on September 13. He is just 65 years old. There was no family history or symptoms. On September 24, we learned the cancer has spread to my dad's liver, stomach and lymph nodes (shown through a CT Scan). After seeing an oncologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC, my dad opted to do a clinical trial. He has since been through three months of FOLFOX chemotherapy, as well as an experimental drug called CT-O11. My family and I are praying that when dad does his first CT scan in 2 weeks (January 22, 2010) that the cancer has diminished. We are praying VERY hard.
I previously lost my mother to breast cancer in 1998, she was just 45 years old. My dad lost his sister to breast cancer two years later, in 2000. She was just 40 years old.
I will do anything to save my dad and bring happiness to his life. ANYTHING.
