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,
