Why? – Why was I diagnosed with colon cancer at 29 years of age? Why am I writing this blog? At this moment I can only answer one of those two questions. I was just 29 years old when I was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer, this blog is an account of my journey with this chronic illness and the lessons I have learned along the way. I hope this blog connects with anyone who asks the question ‘why?’ when they think of cancer.
