Re: MGD007 compound specifially for advanced colorectal cancer

The name Lindsey comes to mind. In any case, she had a partial response, but then she either had progression or the drug became to...

Re: Tom marsilje

I'm at a loss, heartbroken, my God-- I can't believe it. I knew things were bad over the last week due to his silence on FB, but I didnt expect this to happen so soon. Tom was a true cancer warrior, a brilliant doctor and scientist, and the absolute best advocate for CRC awareness and treatment on t...

Re: Stella (vilca11) went home (more than a month ago)

This is so sad, may she rest in peace. Stella was a fighter for sure, undergoing any and all kinds of treatments that might help, and she was very knowledgeable and sweet. :(

Re: My Wife Passed Away Today

I'm so very sorry. Its only been a few days it seems since you let us know how she was doing, I'm sure her passing so quickly was not expected. Its hard to find any positive in times like this but I'm glad to hear she was without pain. May God bless and have mercy on her soul and you and your family...

Re: BrownBagger ....... I don't know what to say

I'm so sorry to hear this. Eric was a very positive force on here, and an inspiration to others with his super-human number of chemo rounds and very active lifestyle. This is a shock to me, I had no idea he was doing any worse than he had been in the past couple years. May he rest in peace....

Re: Paracentesis questions for those of you that have had one done.

Michelle, the fluid can perhaps vary a little, but my moms was a thin, clear, bright yellow fluid. Almost like urine. The paracentesis was a simple outpatient procedure. After a couple paracentesis procedures though, we elected to have the catheter installed. It was very easy to use the drainage kit...

Re: The Grim Reaper took another swipe at me !!

I'm so sorry to hear this... When I learned this I immediately got depressed and have been down the whole day. Frenchie was one of the first personalities I encountered here at CT more than 2 years ago. He was witty, funny, smart, and seemed to be a very nice guy. The "5 year club" badge o...
