    I was diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer that metastasized to my liver in April of 2017. I’m doing pretty well right now as my last CEA tumor markers have gone down to 3.2 from a whopping 789 in April 2017 I have been on an all organic sugar free diet since I was diagnosed. I’m still getting chemo through my port, I won’t give up on the chemo, it’s not what it used to be years ago. It’s hard on my body but I’m breathing. Need to stay positive, stress free. Positive thoughts bring positive results. I can handle the side affects from the chemo as long as it’s working. I had two bouts of Y90 radiation for the tumors in my liver. Last known the cancer was gone in the colon. My oncologist send me for bloodwork every off chemo week, I get treatment at the Florida Cancer Specialists ever two weeks. I am able to care for myself cook my meals and do my juicing daily. I will keep all you to in my prayers. I’m happy to be waking up each morning and starting my day. Nutrition is so important in our recovery, I incorporate greens in my meals, breakfast I have Bok Choy every morning to start my day. I don’t drink pop(soda) ice cream I crave so I make my own and it’s delicious. Best of luck to everyone and God Bless

    Hi, sorry to hear you are going through this and totally understand you not wanting to put poison in your system! I had chemo prior to my surgery to help reduce the size of the tumor but elected not to do any more after my surgery. At the time, they doctors could not tell me definitely that it would help so I took a chance. Having said that, I did have re-occurence to my lungs and ended up going on chemo again, but that very well could have happened anyhow. It think it's a good plan to hear out your doctor and also solicit the folks on this site for their experiences. You'll get a lot of different views that may help you with that decision. Keep us posted!
