    following the surgery on 12/19/12, it now has shown up in my Jaw Bone. New surgery now scheduled for 2/19/13. It will involve partial to full removal of Mandible. Has any one else had this?

    Lost loved one

    Loss

    I'm writing this for my husband and am saddened to say John lost his life to this despicable disease on March 18, 2014. He fought very, very, very hard for two years and endured extreme pain to try to live. Myself and his children miss him more than words can express. We loved him so very, very much and life will never be the same without him!
