    I am sending prayers your way. I hope they can start chemo soon and that you tolerate it.

    My best wishes to you in your journey. You are in great hands with an onc from MD Anderson and also being so close to the large facility. When I lived in Texas that was going to be an option for me if I needed other then standard care. Moving here to Tampa, though, I am thrilled to now be with Moffitt Cancer Center. It is a huge facility and I feel more confident here. Looking forward to hearing more as you go ahead in treatment. dx 6/06 Stage IV mets to liver

    Sending prayers your way and good thoughts. Keep the faith . An upbeat doc is and one who studied at MD Anderson is a great combination. Keep us posted! Good luck and God Bless.
