I thought we were having a bad week... Hubby's chemo apparently not working, hubbys father liver met is growing... But found out yesterday, my Father's cousin died yesterday of colon cancer after a long (3 years) battle. He left behind a wife and daughter. The family has had 3 other losses in the past year...his mother died of Breast cancer with lung mets, his aunt (my grandmother) of a stroke, and his brother in Jan of this year. It has taken quite a toll on them. I ask for prayers for his surviving family members... Thanks to all. It is time to beat this terrible disease! I just don't think I can take much more or I think I'll go mad!!!

God Bless...

    Sallyjoy,

    I am so sorry the chemo is not working. YOu are not alone. My husband had 6 weeks chemo/radiation, surgery followed by more chemo. The tumor came back while on chemo. I know how devasting news like this is. Chin up. There are alternatives out there! Never give up looking for answers and a cure. Not everyone responds the same and some things that work for some don't work for others and so on. Keep exploring options.
