I know this cancer is going to be a battle, but with the support of family, friends and the church, I know I am in really good shape to win. I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer on August 31, 2012. I had my surgery on September 4, 2012 to remove the cancer and part of my colon.I work part-time for the Forest Hills School District in the High School Cafeteria for the last 7 years and prior to that I was a stay at home mom. I really enjoy working for the Forest Hills School District, because both of my children are in this district, so we have most of the same days off. Finding out I had cancer was very difficult for me especially since my mother passed away from it the year my daughter was born. I am currently taking chemotherapy in the “pill form”.

I have good days and bad days and not always necessarily the days I take the medication, with the bad seeming to out number the good.
