Hi Moni, Welcome to Cancer Connections. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 colorectal cancer in January this year. I've had chemoradiotherapy, surgery and am now part way through Folfox4. Ben

Re: Hi. Recently diagnosed with bowel cancer

Hi everyone, Thank you all for posting back to me. It has been a ray of sunlight in my otherwise dismal world. I have an 8 year old daughter. She is the sunshine of my life. According to the doctors the cancer has spread and now I have a brain tumor of all things. I would have thought it would spread gradually to like the stomach or something. The doctors dont like my chances but I am a fighter. Nevertheless I am making sure my will is in order and that Ayeisha will get raised by people I approve of. I havent given up but it is dark days for me. Moni
