One of the American Cancer Society’s Tributes of Hope is Sonny Evans. Sonny was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer, in February 2000.
Following surgery to remove it, he started treatment. After the usual 5fu chemo and 30 days radiation, he was cancer free by August. Mr. Sonny continues to have follow up scopes and practices early detection.Being an avid supporter of the American Cancer Society, Mr. Sonny has participated in the Relay for Life for the last 16 years with his church team.
Today he enjoys church, Methodist men and Lions Club. He likes coffee and outdoors. So as a survivor Sonny would suggest do the colon check by mail, eat right, do not drink alcohol and use tobacco. Together deadly.
