Colon Cancer Blogs



Colo-Rectal — 13 Comments

    • Because of the small number of blogs, I have combined colon and rectal under “Colon” – I may just change the name to “colo-rectal”. I identify the rectal cancers in the comment line. I have added you. Thanks

  1. Hello,
    Thank you so much for the link to my blog. However, I’d like to point out that GIST (gastrointestinal stromal tumor) is not actually a colo-rectal cancer. It is a soft tissue sarcoma that often originates in the stomach. I know I clicked on the sarcoma link when I was searching for GIST blogs. Thanks!

  2. I’ve been blogging about my journey through metastatic rectal cancer, mothering young children, alternative therapies, and the spiritual/emotional crash course of living with this illness. I just returned in Feb 2012 from 5 mos of alternative therapy in China too.

    • Shira, Thanks so much for letting me know about your blog. I have reprinted some excerpts today as a Guest Blog. I included two links to your site. You should see an increase in traffic to your site. Keep up the great work!
      Take care, Dennis

  3. My year of war with rectal cancer.

    I could have fallen into deep despair over my diagnosis of rectal cancer, but I decided to take the high road and promised myself that my cancer would never get the best of me, never drag me down. I made that promise and have never faltered (even though I had a history of struggling with depression).

    While I have fallen from time to time, I have always righted myself and moved on. I have grown better and stronger from this journey. I share my thoughts and whatever wisdom I have gained in battling this terrible foe.

    While difficult, the past year has not been all doom and gloom. I’ve found that good can come of adversity and I share this with family, friends and others who care enough to read my journal.

    I welcome everyone who is battling cancer or knows of others who are to visit. I hold nothing back. My posts are deep and thought provoking, I talk about cancer and depression, but never create an environment that promotes it. I speak about overcoming the ups and downs of cancer and try to share good advise whenever I hear it. I hope you will join me on my journey.
