In April of 2016, Our family gathered around the docs at UNC Lineberger Cancer Center to hear the results of several endoscopies, and PETs
The surgeon really tried to find a way to scoop out the growth in my esophagus, but each time he went in he found growths on more organs: liver, spleen and pancreas as well as some lymph nodes on the left & right of my chest. There were none on my lungs.
And we were told that I had about 2 months to live.
The family immediately said without even talking over anything "that's just not acceptable!" That's when they started scouring the Clinical trials.Gov. website and ended up with a trial in Nashville using chemo AND IMMUNOTHERAPY
NOW, almost 1 year later we have a Stable result on the esophogus and no growth on any other organ. The quest continues and we go every 2 Weeks to Nashville for IV.
