      Greg,
      The ASCO POST is a valuable resource to every health care provider and I always recommend to my patients that they go to ascopost.com and get a free subscription. It is always up to date on the latest the latest therapies and studies. It's a phenomenal resource.

      I forget when it is supposed to be published, but I was interviewed for the ASCO Post (I think) recently. At least one other person here on WhatNext has been featured in the journal. (I am sorry that I can't remember who it was that told me that their interview had already been published.)

      Well, color me ignorant about this organization. I may have heard about it at sometime these past five years but the name didn’t stick. Thanks for the refresher.

      We tend to bury our heads in the sand and push along the path that we are on and not look for new, updated, and fresh information. These sites that concentrate on research and pushing the edge are great to teach us what's out there.

      I am and follow them and their yearly meeting on new treatments. Dr. West at cancergrace.org is a regular. My first oncologist used to go each year.

      @LiveWithCancer I was interviewed and had my story published in the ASCO journal several years ago. My oncologist confessed he had received his copy but hadn’t read it. I wasn’t allowed to mention his name or where I had received my treatment, though. It was nice to share my story, however, and I still do with friends and anyone who reaches out to me for support.
