Dear DDR,

You and your wife have been through alot! It must be very frightening and it sounds like she has not had a break since her diagnosis. I worry that her cancer is not very sensitive to being killed by chemotherapy. it sounds like the cancer has grown despite excellent chemotherapy choices.

having said that, there are some cancers that will respond to other types of drugs such as avastin. You should ask her oncologist about that option.

I do worry that if the current chemo does not control the cancer, her prognosis _ that is the chance of cure- is low. that is a very hard  thing to face at any age but it is unbearable to consider at her young age.

Please let us know how she is doing.
