Speaking candidly about her situation, Krechelle explained she was diagnosed with polyp disease after undergoing a series of colonoscopies.
"They [doctors] had been finding these polyps...that are the worse kind to find. 12 months later they were still finding them," she said.
The young mum also said she found out there was a family risk of colon cancer and her medical team were concerned about the fact she had these sorts of growths at such a young age.
"We sat down with the surgeon and that's when they gave me the ultimatum - 'get a bag to save your life'."
Krechelle said this means removing her colon and putting in a stoma in order to reduce her potentially high risk of developing colon cancer.
"At the age of 28, I can't take a risk that big with six young children," she continued.
Krechelle continues, "Although I'm putting on a brave face that I'll kick cancers a*** before it kicks mine, I'm scared and saddened that I got chosen to go through this."
The brave mother adds that her husband Dave has gone from working full-time to not working at all so he can concentrate on helping her recover and look after the kids.
Krechelle and her family and friends have begun a GoFundMe to raise money that will be used to help with the families living expenses.
