My husband was diagnoised with advanced pyriform/hypopharangeal HNSCC with mets to the lymph nodes. He's a T4N3MO. The epic study is being conducted to test the efficacy of erbitux with other chemo drugs. He started with chemotherapy in the fall of 09 and started chemoradiation in Jan. He completed his RX in Feb. He had 2 Cat Scans and 1 Pet Scan with no sign of recurrance. After a few bumps in the road he's doing and has done very well. It's so comforting to hear how many peole are doing well and surviving Ca. Are there other people who have been in the first or second epic erbitux study as well as FIRE 34. I would be interested in your progress and experiences. It's so great how all those envolved in this difficult journey are willing to share their experiences and give aid,comfort, and hope to others.
