Hi Marie, I am very sorry to hear about your friend. Unfortunately I have to second Denise's opinion about this cancer being rare and very difficult to treat. I do know that Gemzar is being used as a sustaining factor more often but it is not a cure...however it might hold it at bay for an extra couple of months. Surgery is a possibility but naturally it would depend on where the cancer has spread. Even with surgery--the odds are slim. Good luck and God bless, martha
