Hello...my name is Jasmine Pettross and I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer at the age of 23 in March 2016. I'm currently 24 turning 25 may 10.That was the most difficult time for me but with the help of God, family and friends I got through it. I was told I wouldn't be able to have children unless I got my eggs frozen and that I would have to get my ovaries moved up and one taken out so I wouldn't go into menopause at a early age. I did complete those procedures. I was on chemo April 2016 to May 2016 and had radiation for 6 weeks as well everyday. The radiation caused me to have pain urinating and pain having bowel movements.August 2016 is when I had my surgery to get my Cancer out. They also put a ileostomy bag on me for 8months. I was then cancer free. My pathology report came back negative for no signs of cancer. I was on chemo for four months just to make sure it didn't come back. I finished chemo January 15, 2017. I will get my ileostomy bag off in April of 2017. I officially celebrated going into remission January 15. I would just say to someone who is diagnosed with cancer to just have faith. As soon as I had faith in God is when I started receiving blessings ! God truly saved my life.
