Welcome to the new GRACE site!

Here we hope to provide a place for our community members that go beyond lung cancer.  Our amazing faculty is building and we would like to share their knowledge with others, to provide a place for those dealing with other types of cancers. 

Share our forum with others, and please consider this a safe place to discuss and ask questions about living with cancer.

Colon Cancer With Possible Metastasis

I am inquiring on behalf of my sister-in-law who was diagnosed with stage three colon and rectal cancer in July 2020. She is 53 years old and a former smoker. She underwent chemotherapy for six months, followed by six weeks of radiation, and in April 2020 she had surgery to remove the tumor in her sigmoid. At that time, 17 od her lymph nodes were removed and all were clear, so she was restaged to stage two.
