About
Dx with rectal Cancer stage 3last aug 2010. Had chemoradiation 25 sessions from aug -sept 2010. Had APR with appendectomy and bilateral salphingo-oophorectomy last nov 11, 2010 with permanent colostomy. Final staging is Stage II-A. Undergoing chemotherapy currently with xelox. Happily married for 20 years with a supportive husband and 2 children. Still very active and works part time while undergoing chemo. Want to inspire other cancer patients that theres life after cancer. I have finished m chemo successfully last may 2011. All my scans and CEA are normal. Already I'm working full time and enjoying it. I'm tryingto be an inspiration to all my friends and parents who are sick. God is good!

Im just looking for a friend or someone who is also an ostomates since it's very hard to deal with these kind of problem on your own. I love to dance and travel but afraid not able to travel again because of the ostomy.
Update: 10/1/2011
I already finished my chemo with xelox last may 2011 and had traveled 2x to different Asian countries since then. Life is good and there is a better one after all these treatments. god is so good all the time!
