Hi my name is Robbie, my husband has been diagnoised with mucoepermoid carcinoma cancer, not curable, has spread to his right lung, thoraic area, and more around the neck and lymph nodes. He has had 3 treatments of chemo this friday. They have given him 1 year maybe more or less.
Not sure if this is in the same ballpark as yours but willing to be a friend during this for you. God Bless

Could you please tell me the alternative methods you are using. I have a friend with mucoepidermoid carcinoma of the salivary gland that also metastisised to the lungs. They don't know what to do for her aside from the chemo she is now getting. It's apparently a very rare cancer. I'd be interested in hearing all they've done for you. Thank you and good luck to you.
I am very sorry to hear about your husband. I have a friend with mucoepidermoid carcinoma that they removed and gave rad. for. About 3 months after stopping radiation, it started to spread to the lungs. SHe has 14 nodules on the lungs. She's receiving chemo, but because this is such a rare cancer, they don't know what to give her aside from what she is getting. The last PET scan showed the nodules on her lungs enlarged and she has a hot spot under her tongue. What kind of treatment are you recieving. I would be interested in hearing. My friend is doing very well, although her cancer appears to be active. She hasn't lost any weight, is very active, and looks great. I hope your husband is feeling good as well. If you want I can put you in touch with her so you can share info.

The neck glands tested positive and I will now have to have radiation treatment. Is anybody going through this? I'd like a companion or just someone to talk to that can inform me and help me get through this. Thanks
