My treatment journey included colostomy, chemo, radiation, ileostomy, and take down (reconnecting my body so the bag was no longer needed); I was clear for about a year; cancer came back with a vengeance; I got mad; I gave myself permission to do things differently the second time around. Check out the timeline. I’m clear again as of May 2018, praise Jesus. Really, I do praise Jesus. I write to continue processing the journey and hopefully to encourage someone else.
