I have been on the Head and Neck board, but I have not been posting here. My parotid cancer unfortunately has spread to my lungs and spine. Some senior oncologists at a large University told me to expect a year or two of life. However, I am on chemo that was chosen by genetic sequencing and my last CT scan showed that the lung tumors were shrinking. While I am hopeful that this chemo will continue to work for a while, I am acutely aware of what the doctors told me. One thing I have learned from many sources is to never give up and keep fighting and I intend to do that.
