Anyone who's battling the disease or is caring for someone who has cancer might want to read Lance Armstrong's 2 books

"It's not about the bike" & "Every second counts"

In 1999 Armstrong was diagnosed with advanced testicular cancer that had spread to his lungs and his brain and his chances of survival were rated as low as 20% by some specialists.

Not only did Armstrong win his own personal battle and deal with the devastating effects of the chemo, he worked his way back to a level of fitness and mental fortitude that enabled him to win four further Tours de France that ranked him up with the alltime greats of cycling Eddie Mercyx & Miguel Indurain.

Inspirational stuff. And he started the Lance Armstrong Foundation to give people the information they needed to fight their own individual battles.


And yes, the bastard disease claimed both of my parents.

Cancer

As far as I am concerned any news on a breakthrough regarding cancer is welcome news, at present my Dad is battling bowel cancer and lung cancer, so a big thank you for the post.

Thanks - that is why I posted this - ANY glimmer of hope has to be worth something - I just hope it doesn't fizzle out like all the others - it DOES seem the most promising for a while though.

Hope he hangs on in there!!!

Kim this may also be of interest

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/4413585.stm

"People with advanced bowel cancer will now have a choice of therapy after prescribing curbs have been lifted.
The NHS cost watchdog says two more chemotherapy drugs should be considered for such patients in addition to conventional 5-fluorouracil therapy."

Remember sometimes doctors need to have their blinkers removed!!!!
