My name is Heather and I am a Stage IV Colon Cancer survivor.
I’m 39 years old and was officially diagnosed on Feb 29th, 2012. I had surgery to remove the mass in my colon and masses on my ovaries. They removed my ovaries too. I also had 14 lymph nodes removed and 5 of them were cancerous. I still have many cancerous tumors left in my liver.
I have an amazingly fantastic wife, Mary Jo who is the light of my life and the best cheerleader through this twisted journey.
We have a 11 year old son, Kian and an 9 year old daughter, Nalani. They are super sweet and they make me laugh.
I have the most incredible support system of family and friends. I couldn’t of asked for more love in my life and it keeps me going when things get ugly.
I’m writing this blog to keep everyone informed of what’s happening in our crazy lives with this cancer thing. It also keeps me sane to share this journey. Hopefully it will maybe help someone else who find themselves in this similar journey.
Heather (me), Mary Jo, Kian & Nalani
