This is an interview prepared for the Chesapeake Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church in America telling the story of my battle with cancer up through early May 2009. I found out that I had a tumor on my colon on December 19, 2008. On December 22, 2008 I found out that the cancer had spread to my liver and lungs and would later find out it was also in my lymph nodes. I had surgery on Christmas Eve 2008 to remove the tumor on my colon, then began chemotherapy on January 27, 2009. This is the story of my battle from those first few days through early May of 2009.
