La historia de Angela

After just two weeks of symptoms, my husband John was diagnosed with stage IV colorectal cancer November 1, 2013. He was 45 years old at the time. Since then, he has had over 30 chemo treatments, four surgeries, numerous procedures, three series of radiation treatments, and is currently enrolled in his second clinical trial.

Cancer is what he has, not who he is. John continues to stay active playing lots of golf and being a wonderful husband and father to two girls, Emily (28) and Sarah (12).
Ironically, I am a family physician. I have learned what my patients feel - helpless, and terrified. Those are the two adjectives I remember the most from the day John was diagnosed. Over the first six months, we became empowered, mainly because John was expecting me to find the answer. I learned from other caregivers and patients how to be his advocate, and how to find the answers no one was giving me. And now I can help others do the same for themselves.
It has been three and a half years since that day. But here we are - living our life and kicking cancer's you-know-what!
