My husband has participated in four studies. If your interested let me know. I can get you the names. My husband goes to UCLA Medical Center. He has been stage IV for 8 years and he has had 6 tumors removed and 3 brain tumors are dormant after sterostatic radiosurgery. He works everyday and has a great quality of life.

Good Luck!! Keep fighting.

I hope I am doing this right. What kind of vaccine and studies has your husband been on? I have been in stage IV for three years. I have had three tumors removed. I am really interested in the sterostatic radiosurgery. I had a brain tumor removed on the 28th of February and a Gliasite balloon put in the cavity and had a reaction which has been folowed by a plumonary embolism and an infection which now has made three operations. I am trying to decide if I should do follow-up steiostatic radisurgery or a machine call Linac. I have been looking at the center in Hoag Medical in Newport Beach. That is where I presently go for my autogulous vaccine. I would like to kekep in touch with you as it seems there are not a lot of us survivors.

Do you eat a special diet? Or take herbs? If you have the time I would like to hear from you. my name is Cindy Allrn I a presently 50. I am staying with my mother presently in Wyoming and the email address is rosewi@trib.com. Thank you.

I hope you get this. My husband is stage 4 for 1-1/2 years, stage 3 before that and thought he was cancer free for 13 years before that when he had his 1st site removed - level 3. He has undergone bio chemotherapy with IL-2, cisplatin and Interferon - 4 rounds, then maintenance with Il-2 and GSM-FS, both hospital pulses and daily shots. Now he's had recurrences in the soft tissue.I would like to find out more about your husbands clinical trials. Best, Maureen my email is mmegowan@cox.net

I am presently on an autogulous vaccine at Hoag Prespretarian Hospital in Newport Beach. The study is free but you have to travel out there and have your shots there. I had a reaccurance and the tumor they removed is being used as my vaccine. I have been free of that area for a year. But just recently had a tumor removed from my brain but is different because of the blood brain barrier. Good luck. Cindy
