About Me
My name is Michael Carver. I also have Stage IV Colon Cancer. We all fear to hear those words "you have cancer" or even worse "it has spread to distant organs". I have found what works for me in a healing way besides operations and chemo is the relationships I have forged with fine people on this special website. Do I get down at times, you betcha. Do I get overwhelmed with joy at times, most certaintly. My friends here pick me up and we share so much. This is a toughh fight but you dont have to fight it alone.

Posted on September 7, 2012 at 4:15am 1 Comment

To all my friends on here please let us say a prayer or two for our friend Laura. Laura is having the RFA procedure done today. Laura is a very dear friend of mine and I pray this rfa burns what ever lesions they are going after. As we have often heard "burn baby burn".

 

God Bless you all and thanks for taking the time to read this post.

 

Love, Peace and the Power of God.

Sometimes more then others I do feel that I am a prisoner to this chronic disease. I also feel a kindship to it as well. It has been for the last seven years in my family. Its like the relative that comes over for only holidays, brings their own libations and drink until they have a stupior and or beer googles. However, the next day that family member has the choice to leave our house - cancer seems to be throwing out its own welcoming mat and thinks he is a permanent fixture in our…

Hi MC,

I have to say going to see Dr. Nemeh was an extremely powerful expirence. I went with a friend who got the tix and entered the room with extreme doubt. I havnt had either resection yet. I went with an attitude of WTF it cant hurt let me go support my friend.

I left knowing something happened in that room ..there was so much positive energy. I know it helped me get to my NED status that I have status today.

I enetered a disbeliever and left beliving I can beat this ting.

Anything that can put you in a positive place helps beat this scurge back.

Your Brother

I hope you know how much you inspire other patients. I can hear the relief in the voices of people on the helpline when I say I know stage 4 people who've lived 7, 8,9 years and more.  You make a differnce.

Hi my friend,

I already wrote to you a reply and had my battery run out in the middle and lost it. It is so good to hear from you and to hear you are doing well and the scmEA is on the run. Is it Vectibix you are on? I did 10 rounds of it before I couldn't take it anymore. Are you doing ok with it? I got so severely dehydrated I had to quit it. I'll look for you in the Avastin ad. I just saw your smiling face in an old copy of cure the other day. Can you believe we are still here about to celebrate another year of gratitude and love? Even on my worst days I feel that gratitude somewhere down deep. My family is doing well. Tom is a new man and I couldn't ask for more love and support. I know now my capacity to fogive is deep and what an important part of life it is. My grandchildren are such a joy. I am about to start a regimen of supplements and have really ramped up my diet with lots of anti-cancer foods. I know my docs aren't keen on it but what the heck. I feel like I am so far out of the box at this point I can do whatever the hell I want. Do you do any supplements? Wishing you and Coleen a joyous holiday.
