My father was diagnosed with signet ring cell cancer stage 4 in March and it has spread to the abdominal walls. They said surgery is not possible. Started chemo with Oxciliplatin (is supposed to be the strongest) in March. Had the 5th cycle on Wednesday and a check up soon. He is in his late 60s.

His state of mind is very scared and negative. Cannot even sleep at night. Naturally we all are. Can you please based on your own experience and fact finding tell me what is most effective to kill off this type of cancer? Did you have surgery? Is there any realistic chance at a cure? Anything particular helpful that you came across? Any additional advice (such as miracle cures, powerful cancer cell killers, especially against signet ring cell cancer, etc...) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much in advance for your timely reply and advice.

Kind regards,

Michael

Michael...it sounds like he needs to be seeing a specialist is peritoneal malignancies.  I have signet ring ... Drs are not sure Af it is appendiceal of colon origin... I am seeing a specialist at the university of Maryland.  There are a number of specialist across the country... Look up PMP Pals, PMP appendix cancer support groups for a list of specialists.
