Thanks for the kind words Lillie. Yes I remember you from the PC board as I
check that out daily. When my brother was diagnosed it was such a shock
because he already has a serious disease that requires he get transfusions
every three weeks, his entire life. This is a debilitating condition as well
and was at one time fatal. However, transfusions have given him a good
quality of life. THe doctor mentioned that the margins are pretty well
defined - does that make sense and what does it mean? Doctor said this is an
aggressive type of cancer.
