Celebrating 20 Years Since He Was Diagnosed With Colon Cancer, With Kris Thompson


It’s been 20 years since Kris Thompson was diagnosed with Colon Cancer at the age of 18.

From his blog, Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag, here’s how Kris told his story:

“I’m going to lose my hair?!?!” Those were the first words that came out of my mouth when I learned I had cancer. My grandmother, mother and uncle all had either a partial or total colectomy due to F.A.P, and were all diagnosed at a much later age than I without any traces of cancer. With that being said, why would I even entertain the thought of cancer, I mean I was barely eighteen for Pete’s sake. Besides, what eighteen year old develops colon/colorectal cancer?
