Segment: Heed warning signs, cancer patient says

Andrew Gregory thought his gut pain was the flu, or maybe an ulcer.  But it wasn’t enough for the Colorado businessman to seek a medical opinion – even after he had lost 40 pounds.

“I was your typical man,” Gregory said. “I decided I would handle this and just self-medicate with aspirin and push through.”  As his energy ebbed, and at his wife’s urging, Gregory got a blood test. The diagnosis, stage 4 colon cancer, was a shock, especially since Gregory was in his late 30s.
