I hope this story helps someone!
I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July 2011; I had 12 rounds of chemo, 25 days of radiation and 6 internal radiation treatments. In Jan 2012 a pet scan revealed that it had metastized to lymphnodes in my chest - drs at md anderson said they could control it not cure it - they gave me less than a year to live! As a mom of two boys - I could not accept this!
I started another chemo regimen and had 18 rounds before another pet scan which revealed the chemo wasn't working!
My dr in kc missouri had a former student at national institute of health in maryland - he had just been given approval for a cervical cancer clinical trial - I was only the second person to sign up so they couldn't give me any guarantees - as a mom my only option was to fight!!
The treatment worked!!!!! For the last 11 months my scans have been clean and I have not had any additional treatment since August! Feel great - energy back and enjoying being a mom!!!!!
They do amazing things at nih - because they are govt funded - they can't advertise - word of mouth! I would gladly talk to anyone out there struggling pr looking for other options - this trial works - I am living proof
Please feel free to contact me for more info on how to win the fight!!!!
