me

I am 61 years old, diagnosed at age 58. (3-9-51) - STILL HERE!!

I was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer in 2009 and was treated with colon resection surgery, chemo, liver resection surgery, more chemo, plus a clinical trial drug. Soon I'll be 3 years disease free. I get very upset when confronted with survival statistics for advanced colon cancer, but try to shake them off and live my life. I'm proud that I'm still here! I draw cartoons about my cancer experience. My drawings help me manage my fear and rage. Sharing my emotional world has been a huge help to myself and others. I have blog and a published a book called "cancer is SO FUNNY!" My book is being translated for eBook publication in China. If you want to laugh and cry with me, please visit my site. We can spit in cancer's eye together. yours, AMY http://cancerissofunny.blogspot.com/
