Hello friends and family, I was diagnosed with Squamous skin cell cancer of the rectum on September 26th. My doctors recommend 6 weeks of chemo and radiation therapy. Tomorrow, Oct 18, I get my port to start treatment as soon as next week. The doctors have informed me that it is curable and that I just need to do the treatment for 6 weeks followed by 8 weeks recovery. I’m not really sure how sick it's supposed to make me or if I lose my hair, but I guess we’ll find out... staying positive and hoping for the best. We created this website so that I can stay in contact with all my closest friends and family. I’ll be sending updates at least weekly. Thanks for your love and support Love to you all, Joey
