Recommended Posts

I am so sorry to hear about the new mets on your dad.

I haven't had mets to my liver, but I did have one to my spine (t12). Almost 2 years later, I am still cancer free and the met in my spine is gone.

Tarceva can work miracles. I have my fingers crossed that it is the magic bullet for your dad.
