My husand has been told he has pancreatic cancer on Nov 1, 2013.   The tumor involves the Superior Mesenteric Vein.   He has been through 4 rounds of Chemo and is on a clinical trial with fluorouracil [5-FU], leucovorin, irinotecan and oxaliplatin.   Mass Gen Hospital would like him to start 4 more rounds.  If the vien was not involved, they could start radiation and remove the tumor.

We live in New Hampshire. We are looking for the following information:
