Had previously written on here that my mother was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. This is now not the case. She is stage 4 duodenal adenocarcinoma. She will begin her first round of chemo in two weeks. It is a pretty rare form of cancer but treated in the same manner as other stomach and intestinal adenocarcinomas. She is doing FOLFX therapy every two weeks with avastin. Any advice welcome!

My mom was just diagnosed last week with stage 4 stomach cancer. She too is awaiting treatment. She has her first consultation with oncologist Wed. Best of luck.

My mom was just diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer 1 week ago. We are going to the first consultation next week at Gibbs cancer center in spartanburg. We too are from SC. Did u look at this site as a treatment option? It appears highly accredited. Just wanting to know your thoughts
