Deborah's story

I am a stage IV colorectal cancer survivor going on six years this May. I have been through four kinds of chemotherapy and seven surgeries. I lost my dad 31 years ago and my mother four months before me to lung and brain cancer. I have four grown kids that need to learn more about colorectal cancer and being tested.

Deborah's advice

Surround yourself with positive, loving support groups, and educate yourself.

This is not an old person's disease.

What One Million Strong means to me

You are not alone. You have millions to learn from and lean on.
