Re: My forum family

This is really a sad news. Hope your family has strength to bear this loss and have a way of remembering the nice memories. Depression is a silent killer. When my father was diagnosed, I had to take Prozac and Lorazepam for depression and anxiety respectively and it surely helped. I still take it as...

Re: Oxaliplatin and neuropathy

This health care roller coaster can be quite a trial, and without Obamacare, I might as well hang everything up. Fighting cancer even with the best of Insurances is a nightmare. (e.g. Steve Jobs who had access to even late stage Liver transplant) Without Insurance, it's a Russian Roulette, with a f...

Re: TIL Immunotherapy at NCI

Congrats to Celine.
1st case of NED using immunotherapy in Colon Cancer, hoping for many more success stories now.

Re: Liver trial: CAR-T (re-engineered T-cells) Hepatic Artery Infusions

My father was part of this trial in Rhode Island. However, he had severe reaction to interleukin which resulted in a lot of blood loss. This made his health deteriorate, while the Cancer burden increased. He passed away in Aug 2013, a month after trial got over. This process could work for few patie...

Something The Lord Made

This movie is available I think on Netflix streaming and please watch it if you can.
Highly recommended and will surely reiterate that some surgeons have hands of God.

Re: The Judge Movie

Another movie that I saw was about Dr. Vivien Thomas.
Something The Lord Made
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivien_Thomas

After that movie I am convinced that there is a lot of difference between a good surgeon and a great surgeon.

The Judge Movie and Something The Lord Made Movie

I recently saw "the Judge" Movie. If you haven't seen it, please see. It's the first mainstream movie that has one character with Colon Cancer. Hope this does not give away the suspense of movie, but I would like more people to watch that movie as it makes so much sense to us. I do hope mo...
