I am a 49 yr old colon cancer survivor. I found out about my stage 3 cancer in Sept. 08 when I was 48. I had a colostomy for 14 months/now reversed. 4 surgeries/6 months of chemo...and cancer free. Day before my PET scan..my husband 48 finds out he has prostrate cancer which required a radical remove. That's now done and he is also recovering. I have major issues with neurophothy, working now only 20hrs per week. Use to have a high level management position, now I do special project from home using my home computer. My husband and I consider ourselves lucky to have found our cancers now...our children will now be able to have testing done early in their lives and hopefully never have to endure what we have. However, we are survivors.
