My darling wife has had Kidney Cancer for over 6 years. She is now only 44 years old. It has been a stuggle, especially the last couple of years. She has had mutiple surgeries, nephorectomy, lymph node removal, vertebrate scraping and metal rod stabalizing, tried numerous clinical trials, special diets, homeopathic medicine and chinese medicine. We are in Canada, thank God for the medical system as it is expensive enough with out worring about all the medical costs. I just want to say that nothing is for sure with this terrible disease. Nothing, from what I have been reading in the past few years is exactly the same, as this cancer does not like to play fair. Enjoy life. I don't want to scare anyone, but you really just don't know how things are going to go with this cancer. As our oncologist told us years ago that this cancer may disappear for 10 years but will probably show up sometime. Make every day count. My wife is a real special person. She has never complained with all that she has gone through, and is a real inspiration. I know all that she has done over the years has made an impact on the cancer and impeded its progress. Keep the hope!
