My Son in Law has colon cancer

My son in law was just diagnosed with stage 2 colon cancer. He is 49 and in otherwise good health. I know little else as I was just told yesterday. He said they'll operate Wednesday and have chemo and is expected to be fine. I am sad and I know my granddaughter will be very upset. I know since they caught it early his prognosis is good but I am very sad. I would like to ask for thoughts and prayers as our families go through this. TIA

I can imagine how upsetting and frightening this is. Try to concentrate on the positive, and that they found it in such a young man. It sounds like it will be a positive outcome. I will say a prayer for all of you.

Wish him all the luck in the world. Used to be to begin colonoscopies at 50, now with so many younger affected, they have changed to 45.

@KCDiva  I am sending prayers and positive thoughts to your SIL for a successful operation and full recovery.  DH survived both stage 4 colon cancer as well as liver cancer and made a complete recover, probably at a much older age.  With the right surgeon, you can expect a very positive outcome.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!
