Best wishes, Pat!

Cancer has picked one tough opponent this time, and hopefully Pat will beat it!

I am a bit worried that they are talking chemo right off the bat, rather than an operation. I am no doctor for sure, but my mother died at 59 from colon cancer, and my recollection is that the first phase is often removing the tumor and the affected part of the intestine, if the problem has remained localized, so the projected initial treatment in this case might indicate some kind of spread...

Maybe someone with medical background can shed some light on this and, hopefully, demonstrate that my recollection is wrong (my Mom passed away 20 years ago).

Hang in there, Pat!
