My first post: A confession

I have cancer.

I have wanted to say that, maybe even scream that, to every person that I have seen and talked to over the past 11 days.  But it is not polite to scream things at random people (because you would be considered a crazy person), so I have been silent.

But now it is time to share. 

I have cancer.  Colorectal cancer to be exact.  And it is Stage 3 (T3cN2 to be exact).

I needed to get those words out before I begin sharing my story with the interweb. And i promise i will be blogging my story and updating as much as possible.

But for now, i have cancer. I am 40. I have no family history. I have no risk factors. I am in the best shape of my life. I have no pain. I am a physician. Cancer was never on my radar. But now, it is the #1 enemy and there is no alternative other than to beat it.
