Beating The Odds

Filed under: Personal — by teofilo @ 9:54 pm

My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer two years ago today.  The prognosis for stage 4 colon cancer is two years.

He’s actually doing quite well; this latest chemo regimen isn’t really stopping the progress of the cancer (though it may well be slowing it), but unlike some of the previous regimens he’s been on it doesn’t leave him so listless and weak that he can barely do anything.  He feels okay, which is the important thing, and he’s more or less his regular self.  At this point I’d say his story is one of success.

  1. I’m glad, hon. I hopes he feels okay for as long as possible.

    Yeah, sounds like good news from here. Best wishes to your dad for continued comfort.
