May 2018 I was diagnosed with stage3b colorectal cancer after a routine colonoscopy. A 7cm tumor was found in my sigmoid region of my colon. I had surgery to remove the tumor and had a resection done of my colon. I had 40 lymph nodes removed during surgery. Three turned out to be cancerous. I did six months of chemotherapy. Then in February I was found to be NED or No Evidence of disease. Since then I have work to advocate for others in the cancer space especially with men. I have work with a fellow stage IV Colon cancer survivor Trevor Maxwell to create The Howling Place group it’s a part of It’s an emotional support group for men only to help support their fight with cancer. I always say ‘ Cancer might be done with me but I’m not done with cancer. ‘ I live in Durham North Carolina with my wife and two adult children. I know I’m a very lucky man to have survived cancer.
