We were diagnosed at approximately the same time. I remember your story from back then. If I could recommend you something, it would be genetic profiling of the tumor. Sometimes cancer mutates quickly. More mutations could mean more susceptible to chemotherapy meds. I am sure, you have great oncologists on board. I only would like to remind Cynthia's story. Cynthia , who has ongoing success with Keytruda. I would send tumor samples for new genetic tests to Foundation One. I sent my own tumor to Caris back in 2015. I wish you best of luck! I will remember you in my prayers.
