My friend's FIL was just diagnosed with COLON cancer. He was brought to the hospital for stomach pains and they thought it could be his appendix from the pain and the blood work came back abnormal. They also found a mass. While doing the appendectomy they discovered the colon cancer. He is in good spirits and has had his loving family surrounding him during this time. Monday he has an appointment to see a oncologist and they will determine what treatment to start next. The cancer was caught early on and before it had any chance to spread. His wife is very shocked and shaken but she luckly has her son and daughter-in law to fall back on for support.
