If you know what pT3,N0,R0,V0 stands for, you know the news my surgeon told me today is cause for celebration. If you do not, read on...
March 29th, 2007, I had surgery for colorectal cancer. Luckily they were able to remove the portion encapsulting the malignant tumour and reconnect "the plumbing". pT3,N0,R0,V0 means the pathology examination of the carcinoma and surrounding lymph nodes has determined the cancer was caught early enough to prevent spreading.
My recovery goal is to ride in the BC Lung Association 200 km Bicycle Trek for Life and Breath in September of 2007. We raise funds for the fight against lung cancer, asthma, emphysema, air pollution and tobacco. Your donation will provide much-needed support for vital medical research and community health programs aimed at improving lung health in our province!
To stay in shape I am already walking 10+ km daily, in two days I will start spinning on an indoor trainer, May 10th I start road cycling again. Please consider supporting my fund raising by going to the BC Lung Association Website and making a donation.
