  1. Kleo- Glad to see you have kept your sense of humor through all of this...Tomm-Tom (I truly lol'd over that!)
  2. I'm so very sorry to hear all of this, especially about your dad being told there is not much hope. With recent advances in treatment, there is HOPE. I'm not familiar with Australia's protocol for treatments, but has your dad had any advanced testing on his cancer, like for various biomarkers/genetic markers? These tests can give docs more info about your dad's cancer to help better prescribe a treatment approach. I am assuming since he was on Keytruda initially, that he at least has a test for PD-1/PD-L1? I know that things may seem very grim right now, especially with your dad having been in the hospital and struggling with the idea of continuing treatment. I was at a very grim point with my mom 2 years ago...she was in and out of the hospital, the last time she spent 2 weeks in the hospital for large amounts of fluid on her lung. She was weak and defeated. And although she never said she was giving up, I was worried that her body would give up on her. But here we are nearly 2 years later and she has no evidence of disease - she was an advanced stage diagnosis too and the same type of cancer as your dad. No part of this journey has been easy and she still suffers from the side effects of treatment, but she lives her life every day. I guess I am telling you this to show that there is hope. Every warrior here is the epitome of hope. Your dad is too. I don't know if any of this helps, but please know that we are here for you. Take care, Steff
