I have avery close friend who has recently been diagnosed with linitis plastica. It is inoperable and stage four. He is very ill and only 36 years old. The cancer has spred through his abdomen wall and appears to be spreading through his body. He is waiting to start chemo once he heals from an operation during which they had hoped to remove his stomach but were unable to do so. His prognosis is bleak and I was just wondering if anyone out there has ever beat such a poor outlook. He is looking at a few months of life if he's lucky. There sre no words for the sadness this his causing his young family and his many friends. Please help us.
