I saw some talk about this from 2003 but nothing recently. Is there anyone dealing with this now ,especially someone young? My stepson has been diagnosed with this since Dec. 2003 (it came on very quickly) and this December has been given approximately six months. He is 21. He was told chemo would give him another couple of months and he said no since he doesnt want to be sick with only being given such a little time. He was turned down by the Cancer Centre in New York City but does have a meeting with Roswell Park in Buffalo. He had the tumour removed in Jan. 2004 and 2/3 of his stomach as the tumour grew into the stomach and some lymph nodes removed. There was a suspicious spot on the lungs at that time but the doctors werent concerned about it. Now the cancer has metasisized (sorry about the spelling). I am hoping for help in dealing with this news and also information for him.
