Re: [MOL] colon cancer - from TJ



Dear TJ:  I regret that I am not going to be of much help to you.  The
reason being that the treatments your mother is getting is what I have seen
over and over again and with success.  I just don't know what to tell you;
but I do understand how you are feeling and want you to know that I think
you could get much from all the wonderful members of this forum in the way
of support.  Your friend, lillian
