My boyfriend was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumors in January of 2011. He just finished 7 rounds of chemo and is due to start radiation next week.

Indeed, my sister in law was diagnosed in June.. She has completed 2 out of 7 rounds of chemo.. She will be getting surgery after her third round to remove the rest of the tumor on her back and most likely radiation after she finishes her chemo. The chemo has actually shrunk the tumor on her back, tremendously. Which is very encouraging. Her doctor said, her chances of getting rid of the cancer is more than 50/50.
