Colon cancer Survivor Mona Coyle discusses being diagnosed with colon cancer in January 2006. After ignoring a decade of symptoms, Mona had her first colonoscopy and was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer, and had surgery to remove the tumor a week later. A year later her oncologist found a troubling spot on her lungs, and at this point she found the SCCA. Mona felt a positive difference at SCCA and their attitude that they were motivated to beat this, which made a world of difference to her. After two lung surgeries she has no evidence of disease, and is thinking more about life and not taking it for granted. Mona?s gut tells her that she is here today because she went to the SCCA.
