I was diagnosed with colon cancer 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 have recently learned that the cancer has NOT spread and is confined. I will need some type of procedure or surgery to remove the cancer, and then I will have regular follow-up care to monitor for recurrence. But, considering where we started, the path forward is now much clearer and not nearly as daunting. We are very, very fortunate and blessed.
