    Hope you get treatment soon. Stage IV is not the end of the road. I was diagnosed 4 yrs ago and still going strong. Not to say that there have not been really rough patches but I will not give up. There is always a new drug coming. I am in a clinical trial at Moffitt Cancer Center now. This is my 2nd clinical trial and hoping for good results. Keep the faith Blabbe!

    Well, I have been in Clinical trial for 6 months and started having pain in my right arm pit and my throat and ear. PET scan showed 3 lymph nodes in my throat and 2 in my arm pit. So..I'm out of clinical trial and starting radiation (1 week down). Dr is talking about starting me back on Carboplatin and Alimta but not sure I can do that again. Hoping I can find another targeted medication that will keep me stable for awhile. I was on Ibrance in the clinical trial and there was some good results, everything was stable and some of my lymph nodes were getting smaller. My cancer seems to like soft tissue and not major organs or bone.
    Trying to stay positive, but my good friend who was diagnosed 1 year before me passed away yesterday. Sad and depressed.
