Newly Diagnosed

Hello everyone. I have had my diagnosis of Metastatic Colorectal cancer since Nov. 23 2015. I received the diagnosis after being admitted to the hospital for something else that required a CT Scan... this is how the mass(es) were found that came back to be cancer.

I was also born with Cerebral Palsy and use a wheelchair to get around. Since my cancer diagnosis I have become extremely reliant upon my family and friends for help with things such as going to the bathroom. I am not able to sit in my wheelchair much right now because of pain so I rely on family and friends for a lot. That has been the biggest adjustment for me in this whole ordeal, but I am happy to say that I have taken it very well.

I hope to make friends here who will be able to relate to me somehow!
