I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC) on August 16, 2017. I am 36 years old. I have a wonderful family including my husband Sven and our 3 kiddos Calvin (8), Evie (5), and Sylvia (2). We now know that the cancer has NOT spread and is confined. I had outpatient surgery to remove the tumor on September 7. In order to prevent recurrence, I will need additional surgery. We are in the process of determining the second surgery details. Despite this unexpected and upsetting news I have a good prognosis and for that we feel very very blessed.
