      I had Vincristine along with three others in a cocktail called ABVD. So I can't tell you specifically what it done to me, the entire cocktail was pretty fierce on me, but again it was 27 years ago. Maybe someone else can share what happened when they took just the vincristine. We wish your mom the best!

      Hi; I did not have your particular type of cancer.

      Just thought I'd stop by and say hello.

      No matter the particular flavor, all cancer sux.

      Best wishes
