November 15, 2000 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 (4) stomach cancer and told this type of cancer was called SIGNET RING which is an aggressive cancer and that they didn't know anything about it ~ thus didn't know how to treat it. Approximately two weeks later I was sitting in Langley Memorial Hospital being prepped for a partial gastrectomy. Upon waking in recovery, I was informed they had to do the full gastrectomy since the cancer had already travelled throughout the stomach as well as 9 out of 15 lymph nodes were affected with one being a centimeter and a half in size. Thus began the journey that changed my life.
