This sounds great for "normal" cancer patients. Sadly, when you're diagnosed with a rare, incurable and fatal cancer such as myself, there are no more treatments or other alternatives left.
I've done the radiation and surgery (they were a one-time deal with no options left). When the cancer returns, which is 50-50 at five years and even greater at 10 years, I'll be told to go home and die, suffering what my oncologist said will be "a horrible and painful death." Yes, I will be given pain pills to ease the suffering, but nothing more.
So, this program, as much as I'd like to be a part of it, doesn't help me or others such as myself.
Oh, how rare? About 1,200 patients per year. Fatality rate: 79 percent.
Honest, we need to look beyond the "conventional" cancers and think of those who are beyond medical help with little or no hope left.
