      Yes. If you have cancer and are in Texas, MD Anderson looks like a good place to be. That fact sheet for that cancer says the five-year survival rate is around 34 percent (from the 1990's). I have no idea what her condition is, but with numbers like that, it seems there's still room there for hope, especially with top of the line care. So we'll be hoping for the best for your friend, you, and your husband too.

      It is called Inflammatory Breast Cancer or IBC. I was diagnosed with it in November 2011. Had chemo, surgery, radiation and am now in remission with no evidence of disease.

      God love you, nancyjac. I appreciate both your answers. Thank you, FreeBird for the positive of MD Anderson. You know at this stage any positive feed back is appreciated. It is good and bad surfing on this internet. Smile. Thank you.

    Radiation (Internal radiation): Sept. 25, 2012 last day of radiation of spine. Ten days.Surgery was expected but told not needed. Radiation did it's job. Sept. 26th. Home Health came by to sign us up for therapy. Out of the wheel chair and back in the walker. Determined to walk without aides again. Smile. Therapy should help. Been on step down steroids. Eating like a horse. No burning whatsoever from radiation. Just redness on his back with no tenderness. Celebration. Back to Oncology Oct. 9th for follow up to see what next plan will be.
