Don't despair, there are things that you may be able to do. This particular mutation can be found in colon cancer, but is also well know in melanoma. See the following link.https://www.mycancergenome.org/content/ ... ma/braf/54

If your oncologist is a forward thinking doctor, and he can talk your insurance into it, they may be able to treat you with a drug that works well with melanoma's, having this same mutation. Perhaps a combination of one of those drugs and maybe a checkpoint inhibitor to make it go from MSS to more MSI like, might do the trick..
