I, like Sarah, was also in the same position with my husband. He did choose to participate in a Phase I clinical trial, which lasted from late January 2010 until he was no longer able to participate (April 2010). It was his choice to participate. He knew it was too late for him to be saved, but wanted to help others in the fight that would come after him. In retrospect, I wish he had not participated in the trial. It didn't help him at all, the testing was grueling, the side affects of the chemo regimen were very challenging for him. I wish we had had those few months without him having to endure such a poor quality of life. I don't want to say don't do it, because you and your husband should base your choice on what is acceptable to you both, taking all things into consideration. But, I wanted you to hear the other side, also. My best to you and your husband. I am sorry you have to make these choices.
