Hi.

I was diagnosed in February 2011 with Stage 3C metestatic cancer in the sigmoid and through the abdominal wall.

I had 17/24 positive lymph nodes.  Had colon resection and FOLFOX.  

I have lived with the terror of this type of cancer and can tell everyone that I was the last person I thought would still be around. 

If anyone needs to communicate with me or wishes to share, please let me know.  Thank you,  Donna

My brother got to know he has stage 3 ( no reports confirmed) signet ring cell ca stomach, and undergone total removal of stomach, is any remedy for him, pls let us know.

Dear Donna,

I have recurrence of stomach cancer after 3 year of cancer free period. Do you mind let me know what kind of treament you have received? 

Thanks,

Jeffrey

Hi Jeffrey,

I don't know what type of cancer you had, but I had signet ring cell in my sigmoud colon and I was treated with 12 rounds of FOLFOX cocktail.  I had a high MSI tumor which is believed at this point to be somewhat responsible for my survivorship.

(MSI= microsatellite instability).  I did have a poorly differentiated cancer cell too with a Staging of 3C so it was tough.  

You can reach me directly at if you want to discuss more.

Best and blessings, Donna

Hi ALL,

I am now a 7 1/2 year survivor of SRCC.

I decided to update this post so others reading can see that survivorship is possible.

Blessings to all.

Hi Donna!

Was reading your posts.  I was diagnosed with poorly differentiated signet ring adenocarcinoma of the appendix that is now on my peritoneal wall.  It is also on my intestine, which has the surgeon Dr Bartlett concerned with doing the HIPEC.  I am sending my information to other doctors to see if any of them specialize in the signet ring.  Was curious if you know of any surgeons that specialize in this?

Thank you!

Hi

Doc said this signet ring cell carcinoma is deadly and we have no guarantee for this life more than 6 months, is this true?

Hi Donna or anyone who is out there~~~~ I am sending this hoping you are well and still checking this board. I would so very much like to communicate with someone about my husband’s recent diagnosis of colon cancer stage 3C Signet ring. He had a right hemicolectomy 27 October at Memorial Sloan Kettering. We received the staging 5 November. He is scheduled to see Leonard Saltz, MD , medical oncology at MSK 13 November. We are beyond shocked and terrified. Everything we have read is so dismal at best. We are ready to do anything for treatment. Any words, suggestions or references would be so gratefully received. Thank you so very much in advance~ Wishing you health and blessings, Ellen
