    I'm in Vale Oregon. I go to Fruitland Idaho to have my treatments. I too am 39. This is some journey isn't it. Ugg.

    I am a 39 year old wife, and mother of 4 who was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in March 2012. Doctors tell me that my condition is "incurable". I am on a mission to prove them wrong :)

      The biggest challenge is believing that you can. It's sounds like you have that piece down! We are all here to support you but you can do this!

    The numbness is driving me batty! My feet and hands don't want to work like I want them to and it gets aggravating. I have some weird things that happen to me too, that have to do with Chemo I hope. Like from the bottom of my head down my back my body does this thing like I have the chills but minus the goose bumps. It's odd and hard to describe, but I am going to try and explain it to my oncologist on Tuesday. And I'm numb other places too. Like like my butt cheeks....LOL And sometimes my tongue. It makes it so things don't taste right. That really bites.

    Celebration (Cancer is shrinking): The only things I remember and that actually made sense to me were "No new Mets" ( so no new cancer ) and the words "Significantly smaller". YAY! Not exactly the "we can't see any cancer anywhere" answer that I wanted. But very good news.
