My father just turned 87 on May 21. In January of 2006 he was diagnosed with bile duct cancer. He went to UC San Francisco to have the tumor removed from his right lobe, but the doctors found that the tumor was too invasive and removed his gallbladder and sent him home. He did a full round of chemo on Gemzar which kept the tumor from growing until this past January when he began 5FU and Leukovorin. His oncologist is putting him back on the Gemzar. I just want to share that his upbeat attitude and basically living his life as if he did not have cancer is what has kept him alive and, of course, the exceptional care he gets from his oncologist. Keep your faith close to your heart and love and enjoy those who love you. God Bless.
