    This is for my son who was diagnioised with Colectrecal(colon) which has spread to his liver and is taking agressive chemo,

    He was told tumors were 90% shrinkage in March so he decided to take a break from chemo cause of the side effect's and trying to work, and I and all my prayer warrior's were praying for a total healing, which I know is gonna happen, I have lot's of Faith and so doe's he, but in May scan showed it had spread near his spleen, near his heart and tumor's in liver were hurting and also his stomach was hurting so now after being off the chemo he is back on it, he got it at age 39 last part of Aug 2016, and I am as other's still waiting for that miracle, I beleive God will heal him so that he can testify at different churches to tell them that he is a walking miracle, which he is, he look's so healthy from beginning and still doe's, well this is my story and any feedback would be nice, he is my only child, thank's

      I'm so sorry to hear this news. I'm 72 and was diagnosed 4 years ago with a form of Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
      Have him check out this site I'm posting here as it from Chris Wark a Colon Cancer Survivor and has some unique info and perspective to give.
      Go only promised us a life but never said how long it will be and that is just the way it is.
      Have him make sure he goes total Vegan ONLY Plant foods and no junk or juices from the store etc. Another interesting diet is the Keto Diet for cancer so have him check that out. He needs to take IP6, High doses of Curcumin, Green Tea Extract, Vit K and D and have him look up diet and supplements on PubMed AND Dr. Greger's Site......

      Good Luck!

      yvonneschuster, I'm sorry to hear about your son and will pray for him.

      My husband and I had similar talks when I was sick last year, he wanted my experience to be a testimony of how God can heal us, but we also talked about how if I didn't get better, it could be a testimony about having faith even when things don't go the way we want. Understanding that God's plans are not always ours.

      I'm 45 with 2 young kids, diagnosed at 43 with colorectal cancer which is now stage 4.

      The break in chemo may extend his life by giving him a bit of time to rally.

      An important question at this stage from his doctors should be what gene mutation he has, so that they can use the most effective medicines on him. Certain mutations ignore certain chemos because they are very resistant. Other kinds are very sensitive to other therapies, so this is something his doctors should know.

      I hope they are giving him very good supportive palliative care too so he can enjoy as much normal pain free time as he can right now. That will also extend his life. It's hard to beat cancer while in agony.

      That's all i can add except that you're welcome to ask this board any questions and people will help, and many here will pray for your son.

      I'm so sorry to hear about your son, it's a sneaky disease and so hard to predict. I pray your faith carries you through and your son finds relief from his pain.

      Sometimes when we pray we tend to give God very specific instructions on how to answer our prayers. When you pray the Lord's Prayer pay close attention to the part "Thy Will be done" God does work miracles but it is according to his plan. I myself am a miracle. I was twice handed a death sentence. April 1 I will be 5 years cancer free. Each day has been a miracle but the real miracle is that I have grown closer to God. I am not completely right with God yet but I am growing in that direction.
      I will pray for you and your son, that you have peace, healing and a close relationship with the Lord.
