My mom has hemangiopericytoma. She has it in her heart (they think-can't do an MRI to tell for sure). She has two mets in her lungs and a few in her liver. She's tried Gemcitabine & Docetoxal, Doxil and now is starting temador & avastin. I've joined a hemagiopericytoma group on Yahoo groups but am curious if there are others out there.

    Same Viet Nam Vet. Still have this disease. Started in left side of head, removed and 30 radiation treatments. Came back in right hip 3 years later. VA though it was arthritis, but my wifes surgeon took an x ray. Sorry, you have cancer. Thank God, my doctor at Emory Hospital knows what he is doing. Pet scan about every 3-4 months. Votrient is the only keeping it in check. Get it free from the drug company.
