Edith's story

I am a 38-year-old hispanic female with a family history of colon cancer.

In May 2013, I was diagnosed with colon cancer. In the weeks that followed I went through extensive tests and finally had surgery to remove it.

It was stage I cancer.

I am very fortunate to be alive and cancer free.

My surgeon told me that I wouldn't have made it past 40 years old. My husband was amazing through this all. My boys ages 4 and 10 are my everything. I can't imagine them without their mommy.

Edith's advice

Take one day at a time.

Think positive every day because that's the only way to think!

What One Million Strong means to me

One Million Strong means that I am not alone in this fight for myself, my family, friends, and others. It means support. It means awareness.
