Mr. colby, sorry to hear of your loss. This silent killer is easily taken care of with todays technoligy. I had 40 percent of my colon removed and still not out of the woods yet. Brian

More often than not this disease is beatable if caught early enough and the screening process is not that bad. It can actually help you get started on dropping those extra five pounds your wife has been nagging you about.

Thanks for reading.

Im very sorry for your loss. I lost my pop to fast acting bone cancer last month, but it all started from his colon cancer. He has been on me for years to get it checked out, it does run in our family. Before he passed, that week, I promised my pop I'd go in and get checked out. I will make an appointment this week. Thank You for your post, and I'm truely sorry about your brother. Jeff

Found out last night that my Uncle has colon cancer. Needs second visit this week before we know any more. Really scary.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
