Lonna and Bob, The Journey
Our Journey began in June of 2009. Bob, age 53 at the time, went in for a routine, and first colonoscopy visit. It was discovered that he had a large polyp imbedded in the colon wall. He was scheduled for surgery to remove it at which time the doctor determined that a colon resection was necessary. Nine inches of his colon was removed during this surgery. The recovery took all summer and into the fall.
Cancer changed my life! Well, of course it did but not in the way that you would think. My cancer diagnosis actually woke me up and made me start really "living" again. Beginning with Dr. Schewe and his awesome staff who assisted me with life-changing options regarding my diet, environment, health care choices and attitude!!
Jene’e, My Journey Through Cancer
In mid February 2011 I noticed what appeared to be a fever in my left breast. Thinking there was some sort of infection or insect bite I made an appointment with my doctor and was prescribed ten days of antibiotics. When this did not clear it up I returned to the doctor again and was sent for a mammogram and biopsy of the breast and lymph nodes. The very next day I got the dreaded call, It was cancer and not just any cancer but inflammatory breast cancer Her 2+ and had indeed spread to the lymph nodes. I was informed that I needed to see a surgeon immediately and that the referral was already done.
