my dad is currently in a fight for his life, radical neck dissection for squamous cell carcinoma in April failed to remove all of the cancer. The surgeon told my family that his illness was terminal, the cancer had spread to the chest wall and possibly to the vertabrae.
He's been going through daily radiation and weekly chemo for a little while now, with 2 and a half weeks left. The treatments are getting to be extremely rough on him and he's really ready to give up. He has already been through radiation before due to previous laryngeal cancer and was given an all clear last November.
I've read through nearly every thread on this board, looking for a ray of light. For those of you who have had similar experiences I'd be interested in hearing your stories, just so I can know my dad isn't the only one who has had to deal with this and that there is still a chance at life.
