    And if you can't cut and cut and cut...nothing will save you. Have you ever asked a doctor what they would do if they had inoperable cancer? I have. They would opt against chemo. If a doctor doesn't trust chemo, neither should the patient. Chemo brings misery, false hope and inevitable death. I really just want one person to prove me wrong. If anyone knows of even one person who has survived cancer with chemo as the ...

      I agree with you 100%. I am a firm believer that chemo killed my mother faster than the cancer.  Patients with inoperable stage 4 cancer are given false hope that chemo will increase their survival time, maybe even cure them, but it doesn't. Thank you for your post.  i only wish more doctors were honest with their patients about chemotherapy and its destructive effects on the body and enjoy however much tim...

          due to her heart condition, suggest driving to Houston. I have not heard about the drug in Israel, but if they have it there, they can get it at MDAnderson.  call them tomorrow and get your sister and appointment  good luck! :) wish you the best.

            Just read your sister is in Nashville. My mother lived in Memphis. I strongly believe the pollution in TN is the cause of these rare cancers.  MD Anderson takes medicare. Btw, i know how you feel when she tells you she doesn't want to die. My mom fought so hard...and she begged me while in LA not to let her go home in a box...I promised her she wouldn't. 5 days before she passed away, she said she wanted to go h...

              I'm sorry to hear about your sister.  im glad chemo has helped her. I do not recall the name of the person I spoke with at MDAnderson. I just called them and requested an appointment. I sent in all her scans and records and got her an appointment. Do they know the origin of your sister's cancer? The origin of my mother's cancer was never undetermined. I think the reason chemo did not help her was due to the fact...

                I am terribly sorry to hear about your sister. My mother passed away in September, 2011 from cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), 7 months after diagnosis. After she was diagnosed, I read an article about a man who had stage 4 cancer that had the whipple surgery at Washington University in St. Louis, and was cured of his cancer. Unfortunately, surgery was not an option for my mother. She went to UCLA for treatment,...

                  dear jackie, Our stories are so very similar. My mom had an appointment scheduled to see a specialist at MdAnderson 2 weeks after she was first diagnosed with "cancer of unknown origin" in Memphis but she thought 2 weeks was too long to wait since my sister told her she found a doctor at UCLA that would see her in 3 days (which was a lie. She waited 2 weeks to see that doctor too) so she cancelled the appt with Mdan...

                    Dear Irene, Thanks for your reply. I am really sorry about your husband. I know your pain. I never knew real pain until cancer invaded my mom, and thereby, my family. While I am glad that her suffering is over. It doesn't end for me or my family. My 2 younger sisters and I are also forever haunted by wondering if we had taken my mom to MdAnderson, Washington University, Mayo Clinic, Sloan-kettering, or Johns Hopkins...

                      My dear mother passed away Sept. 23, 2011 from bile duct cancer just shy of 7 months after diagnosis. She was just 67 years old and lived a very active and healthy life style. You never would have known she was even sick. She was complaining about an uncomfortable dull pain under her right rib cage. Her internal medicine doc said "it's probably just your gall bladder". He ordered a CT scan which showed it was much mo...
