Hi Steph. I heard about you through a substitute teacher at SPS, and just wanted to stop by your site and let you know that you are in my prayers. I was diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer in January of this year at the ripe ole age of 32. I am currently undergoing chemo for this (10 treatments done, 2 more to go). I am truely inspired by your strength! Isn't it amazing what a positive attitude can do for your health!? Hang in there - I will continue to include you in my prayers.
