I am so sorry you lost your wife and cannot even imagine what a terrible loss that is to you. I pray that time will help you to deal with your grief, and that time will not find me in your position. This is the reason for my querries. I just happened on this site yesterday, so I have not read too many postings yet. Some that I have read are discouraging, but then on flip side, some are encouraging too. I have not read about any particular regiments these patients are on which is why I posted the protocols my husband's been on and asked for feedback...which I got. I plan to inquire about clinical trials when my husband and I see his oncologist in two weeks. I am particularly curious about the Cancer Virus report I heard briefly on the news. It's a virus scientists discovered that adheres only to the tumor cells and kills them and does not effect the good cells. I have heard of erbitus and erissa, but believe they are not FDA approved for pancreatic cancer. What do you know about them? A lady I know of who was diagnosed with lung cancer and given 6 mos. to live, was put on erissa and a year later she is still here and doing well. I cannot yet give up hope...that we will happen on a protocol that will put his cancer in remission. I hope you are getting good support from your family and friends. If you come across any helpful information in fighting this disease, please pass it on. Thank you.
