    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I was diagnosed on 8-30-2012 with stage 4 neuroendocrine cancer which had metastasized 3 tumors to my head. I've been through radiation, chemo, and now I'm going through radiation on my chest. I went into the hospital the day after Christmas because I was having a hard time breathing and was diagnosed with pneumonia and with the scans they did they found out that the chemo wasn't working because my tumor by my lung was enlarging.
