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). Since the time of diagnosis I have had 2 surgeries (one minor, one major). The second surgery revealed there was residual cancer in 1 of the lymph nodes they removed. Fortunately, there are treatment options available and we have the best minds determining the proper course of treatment. Things could be much worse, and we are very blessed.
