I have stage 4 anal cancer that has spread to the liver, lungs, and groin area. My oncologists give me less than a year to live. I have tried various chemo drugs to date, and my tumors, though small, are not reducing in size.
I am surrounded by great friends and have a loving partner. Unfortunately, he lives in Europe, and I live in Atlanta so we only see each other every 6-8 weeks. I feel great but am told that the end will be near soon. I am still feeling that I can conquer the disease but, save for a miracle, know it will not happen.
I would be interested in talking to other stage 4 people about how they are dealing with the coming end of life. I am spiritual but not interested in talking with Christian conservatives.
I am also interested in talking with anal cancer people about what chemo drugs they are taking. My oncologists are running out of ideas. Has anyone taken the drug Erbitux?
