I have no idea why it took me so long to find this board, but I'm glad to have finally landed here!
My husband (and I) has been battling his head and neck cancer now for the past 4 years. Started out as a tumor in his sinus cavity that progressed into his lymphnodes. We have really been put through the wringer these past few years fighting the good fight (2 rounds of conventional radiation, about 13 weeks worth total, and then 5 treatments of cyberknife in between that, accompanied with years of chemotherapies and the removal of the lympnodes on the right side of his neck and into his cheek). It's been a long road. We had hoped that the cyberknife would be the magic bullet but it has come back. Radiation is no longer an option since he has been so heavily dosed so we're looking for the next best thing. I'm trying my best to stay optimistic as I have been, but for some reason I'm having a tough time this go around. I'm grateful already for the support that I can possibly find here.
I look forward to participating and supporting the best that I can.
