Curt had just turned 50 and was anticipating getting a colonoscopy, as recommended. He started to feel tired and was having some pain when he made the appointment. On January 1, 2016, he found out he had Stage IV Colon Cancer and it had already spread to his liver. He first received chemotherapy and then radiation to treat the Cancer in his liver. Due to the more specialized treatment, it took a greater toll on him than he anticipated. Curt will continue to need treatment for the remainder of his life, due to the late stage of his Colon Cancer. He will never be Cancer-free anymore and it is something he will need to manage with the help of his doctors.
