I found out my dad had been diagnosed with Stage 4 HCC with mets to the lungs shortly after Christmas. His doctor told us there was no cure, no clinical trials, only NEXAVAR... a drug to "prolong his time" My dad just beat Stage 4 Head and Neck Cancer and after two clear scans this news was devastating. I cried for days, couldn't sleep from the anxiety of feeling that my dad was going to die at any moment. Fate had me stumble onto this site and reading your posts have profoundly changed my outlook. It is easy to forget that life is a choice and that Doctors are not God. It is because of your contributions that we have actively been seeking second opinions, clinical trials and alternative therapies. Thank you for being such a positive voice, for giving others hope when you too could be feeling sorry for yourself. Your husband is lucky to have you, as are we. You both are in my prayers!
Wishing you all the best!
