I had a transverse colostomy with one opening at the end of February 2016 due to a colon blockage which prevented me from eating for about a month. The blockage turned out to be Stage 3 Adenocarcinoma. I am doing chemo for 6 months. I am thankful to be alive and I appreciate each day, which is a gift, and I am overwhelmed by all of the support from family and friends.

I am into music. I was a Blues DJ on the radio for six years, and play guitar, acoustic and electric whenever I get a chance. I am a member of E Clampus Vitus in Northern California (The Clampers) and help the widows and orphans, especially the widows.

I like this web site with so much useful information and there are so many cool people willing to help each other.

Let me know if you could use a friend. Peace
