Mcgill-toolen Alumni Rally To Help Former Classmate Diagnosed With Colon Cancer

"Valerie is truly one of most optimistic, kindhearted, sweetest people on the planet," said Donnelly. "She has an unbelievable heart. She taught autistic kids when she worked and she has the patience of a saint." Wallace lives in Hoover with husband Bill, son Will, 16, and daughters Lacy, 13, and Hailey, 12. Lacy designed a Team Valerie t-shirt for the run which incorporates the family's favorite Bible verse Philippians 4:13 which says: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." In November, Wallace had surgery to remove the section of colon at the sigmoid rectal junction along with lymph nodes and surrounding tissues. Several weeks later she began chemotherapy which she is continuing, but the cancer has metastasized to her liver and she is facing liver surgery as well as further chemotherapy. For the last several years, prior to the discovery of her colon cancer, Wallace battled several neurological disorders that cause daily migraines, nausea, vomiting and difficulty swallowing. "I've been sick for so long and with the other neurological disorders, there's no cure.

Surgery for colorectal cancer patients through the natural route

It turned out she did have cancer of the colon. But she was spared the prolonged pain and recovery from open surgery when her surgeons found they could use keyhole surgery to remove the cancerous parts through her rectum. As a result, her other fear - of a painful and traumatic operation - was laid to rest. "I had heard so much of other patients who ended up with a long cut on their abdomen, which caused them quite a lot of pain for quite a while," she said. "I did not feel much pain after the surgery. I could bathe on the third day." Cancer of the colon that is detected early is treated with surgery. If it is early-stage cancer that has not spread or broken through the wall of the intestine, removing it gives many such patients an excellent chance of survival. In conventional open surgery, a 20cm-long cut is made on the abdomen through which the surgeon removes the diseased colon.
