My brother is 41 years old and was just diagnosed with Stage IV Stomach Cancer that has spread to his liver and possibly his pelvis. He's had a hard life, suffering from Lupus @ age 9 which lead to kidney failure and 10 years on Dialysis. In 2000 I donated a kidney to him. He developed diabetes some five years after the transplant and sufferred the occassional seizure. Needless to say our entire family is devastated as cancer was never on the radar. The above will tell you that he's a fighter, but we're all very aware of the odds we're up against. We've found a very caring Oncologist in Sarasota, Florida who is considering treatment with the drug Herceptin. We know what he has is not curable as things stand today, but we're hoping that we can buy a little more time for him...you never what medical breakthroughs tomorrow may bring. Any advice and/or prayers are very welcomed.
Thanks for listening,
