There are chemos that can shrink the tumor and give your wife a quality of life. Is there a cure, no one knows and everyone does react differently. Your wife may have many years if they find a chemo that can control her cancer.
oh didnt know that,thank you so much i just thought chemo was a 1 time thing if it worked or didnt so thank you,thats takin alot off my shoulders now,praying one works well for her,we are going to the dr's tomorrow to get all appointments for getting the ball rolling for the treatments
