The purpose of this blog is to share my fight against cancer with my family, friends, and colleagues. In addition to providing updates on the facts, I also will share my thoughts and emotions. So, if you indulge me in this venting, I am sure it will help me in this fight.

I hope that this blog will bring together all the people praying for me, gather us together in a virtual space. Wherever two or more are gathered together the LORD is present!

Anyone who is interested in following this story can follow along (see below for best way to “follow” the blog).

I hope my story may benefit others somehow; although I confess that I’m not sure exactly how.  Perhaps it may inspire someone to follow-up on a symptom and catch a problem sooner than they might have on their own?  Perhaps it will help someone gain insight into a fight against cancer and allow them to be a better supporter or friend to someone facing this disease.  In any event, I am looking for your help in shaping up this blog so it accomplishes this goal so please feel free to post any comments or thoughts along the way…

Of course, I don’t know the end of my story at this point, but I will start by writing the END anyway. So sorry to ruin the story but this story will end as follows.

My hope: By the Grace of God and the skilled hands of many doctors and surgeons, this cancer will be put into remission and I will live a long and happy life supporting my wife, children, brothers and sisters, and numerous friends.

My faith: I believe that our living LORD has the power to heal, and healing me or anyone from cancer would take but a blink of an eye. And if it is the LORD’s will, than the cancer that I’m facing will be defeated and I will live to serve the LORD for many more years on this earth. And if the LORD’s will is for me to come home to him, than I will go to serve and praise the LORD as his servant for eternity. Either way, we will ALL be alright.

So, the start of this story begins with the following prayer.

Jesus, no matter what, I pray that you give me the wisdom to know your will, the courage to choose your way, and the strength to serve you as you wish. Amen

    Phil, Your picture came up while doing a Google search. Anything work for the Erbitux rash? I just started an looks much like your pics. Thanks!

    • Phil says:

      Not really. I used a steroid cream and that may have prevented a worse rash, however I ended up with a rash after each treatment. The good news is that it lessened after each treatment and went away entirely after treatments ended. Good luck and God be with you.

  2. My name is Chris. I am 46 years old and was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer two weeks ago. I came across this blog while searching for survivor stories. Turns out, I see the same oncologist that you did, and wanted to reach out. I would love to hear more of your story as I deal with this “new normal” that I now have. It’s inspiring to know that stage 4 cancer can be beat.

  3. George says:

    Hi Phil. What mutation of colon cancer did you have

  4. Jim Gray says:

    I live in Marshall and read an article about stage 4 colon cancer which involved you.

    Very recently my 35 year old niece was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with liver metastasis.

    She is scared to death of course. If she would feel comfortable with it would you reach out to her in support?

    • Phil says:

      Jim, sorry to hear about your niece’s diagnosis. Absolutely feel free to connect. I’m on Facebook as well.

  5. Dear Phil,
    My brother has been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and has a mass which is bleeding. It also has spread to his liver. Surgery is not an option, but chemo is. I don’t know if you would be willing to share what chemo protocol you were given. If so, please feel free to email me at dajuneja@gmail. com or I am on FB under the name Debbie J. Muggoe.

    Thank you so much for sharing your miracle, because right now we believe that is the only thing that will save him.



  6. Kim Linebarger says:

    My 38 year old son has just been diagnosed with colon cancer. He has a 22 month old and a 3 month old. We are believers as well. If there is any way you could reach out to him I would be so grateful. This has been such a blow to our entire family. I will leave my email address. Praise God for your health and journey.

  7. Priscilla says:

    Thank you Phil, for the creation of this blog. It has become such a great Avenue for me to seek confidence, knowledge and solace as I continue to fight for my mom, whom is a stage 4 colon cancer patient, she was recently diagnosed at the start of the year. I wish you best of health, you are one amazing man! Couldn’t thank you enough for your selfless sharing.

  8. Steve Jones says:

    Hi Phil, I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon-rectal cancer in September 2021, after having resection in June 2020. Came across your blog, and sent you an invite on LinkedIn. Jesus took our infirmities and healed our diseases. I’m trusting for full manifestation of that truth.
    Thank you for sharing your story!
