    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Mother has Alzheimer's and she is not going to be able to do much for my dad. He's been taking care of her. Now it's going to be on me as things get worse.

    Rash

    Side Effects

    Not bad for side effects. Couple mouth sores, little rash, and protein level a little low.
