Just diagnosed with Colon Cancer

Hi Guys and Gals.

What a time it is eh? Just diagnosed with Colon Cancer as a result of my not managing my ulcerative colitis properly. Colon removal to be done and a bag! Also a CT next week to see if it's spread. very concerned because I do have some long-standing aches and pains. Emotionally all over the place and just hoping to have enough time to build my small business up and leave my beloved wife something to live on. We have no family in Oz and  a couple of remote friends so it's double tough and comes at the end of a  dreadful 5 year financial run wherein we sold our house and spent our savings and lost our larger life assurance.  So as I say -  I just need a couple of years to see my wife right. Cross fingers.
