About Megan P.

I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer that spread to my lymph nodes and my ovaries. I didn’t really have symptoms other than feeling full right after eating.

They just knew Mommy had yucky stuff in her belly had surgery and needed medicine. My husband was there for me every step of the way.

He helped me after surgery and then thru 12 rounds of chemo. I could never have gotten thru this without him.
