I am a 5-year survivor of early-onset stage IIIB rectal cancer. It was very difficult to get a doctor to take me seriously about my condition, which could have been caught if I had been screened earlier. I suffered many challenges throughout my treatment and side effects I’m learning to live with.
After 5 years, I’m living life more fully and with much more optimism. I want to help bring attention to the under 50 group of colorectal cancer patients and the need for testing in younger patients.
