Peritoneal Carcinomatosis Update

Hi All,

I received word late Friday night that Dr. Sugarbaker, the surgeon in Washington who does the cytoreduction surgery for peritoneal carcinomatosis, has decided that I am a good candidate for the surgery and he will perform it on Feb. 7 or sooner if he can find a date.

I am thrilled!!! To put it mildly!! I will never believe that this disease is stronger than my will, never...and now I am that much closer to making that a reality.

I hope each and every one of us has a happy and healthy holiday and a fantastic new year!

Best wishes all,

I know that it is a relief to finally be taking some action. Contratulations! The will to fight is stronger than this disease. I am also fighting my second round and I can't imagine that it will get the best of me. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Keep us posted.

Have a wonderful and blessed holiday season and may your New Year be filled with a healthy recovery.
