News

PET results in.

The cancer is back. CyberKnife didn't seem to work completely. A new liver spot, as well. Starting chemo again on Friday. The same Folfox as before. Every two weeks I will spend two days hooked up to chemo. For... 6 months?

It worked last time. It should work again. My doc has seen people require a number of courses of chemo til they finally go five years cancer-free. I have hope. And I have some work to do.

  11. Don't know if you remember me... I used to work in the same office with your dad. I am so sorry to hear that your cancer is back. We are still fighting the disease after a year at Cancer Treatment Centers of America. Was just wondering - have you been tested for the K-ras mutation? My husband, Arnie, was tested and did not have the mutation and has done very well on Erbitux, which is more targeted and has fewer side effects. Just something to discuss with your doctor as other treatment option. Shelly - don't every give up! There are always other avenues of treatment. You are in our prayers! -- Sharon
