Patients & Survivors Stage II Colon Cancer New Jersey

Story: “I am lucky -- I suspected something was wrong. I had a colonoscopy done and a polyp was discovered and removed. I was diagnosed with stage II colon cancer. My world turned upside down. I had a resection and was prescribed chemotherapy and radiation.

Since then, I’ve been educating the community about the importance of early detection. Our most successful campaign occurs at our No Shave November event where first responders and community members grow beards, donate, and celebrate with a Shave Off event. Together, we’ve raised over $50,000.”

Advice: “Stay positive and get involved in helping others.”
