Wow so sorry to read this. I to have stage 4 colorectal cancer. I was dx at 33 just turned 34. My cancer has metastisized to my both lungs, sternum, liver, and pelvis. Due to the tumor in my pelvis I don't qualify for radiation or surgery.
What does it mean when you are in avuvent therapy? Does it mean they have exhausted all there options?
I have been told I'm treriminal but there are several treatments yet to try. I tried one 6 mo. Round of chemo that helped some but not enough. Not even enough to take a small break. So I will be doing1 year straight chemo and praying for a miracle. I will do the same for you. God bless! Gloria

I was diagnosed with stage4 rectal cancer at age 33. That was back in September. I am now 34 and have had 14 rounds of chemo. I am inoperable and radiation won't work either. If you ever have any questions feel free to ask. I will keep you in my prayers. God Bless as you start this journey. Gloria

Hello Beth, I am a colerectal cancer patient stage4. I am 34 years old with 4 children. I assume its your spouse who has the cancer but I am here any time you have questions or just want to vent. I live in Sault Ste. Marie Michigan so not to far from you. I have been fighting this since September of 2012. I am currently on second 6 months of chemo as the first round didn't work. Hope to get to know you. I know how very important it is to have a support system thru this. Not just friends and family but those who are going thru it and know first hand how you feel. Gloria
