A.J., my husband has Stage IV Malignant Paraganglioma of the abdomen. His primary tumor is in the abdomen on the right side, but he has tumors from the top of the skull down to just above his knees. He was diagnosed 4 years ago this coming December. We've been through many treatments, doctors...it's been one heck of a journey.

Anything you need, just let us know. I hope you're doing well!

I have them all over me also. I have found hope that your husband has survived for so long. I would appreciate any info you have. I begin chemo next week as my first treatment. They told me as long as they can hold the tumors at bay with chemo, I live. Thanks you.
