            My husband was 50, with EC Stage IV mets to liver. He was on Docetaxel/Paclitaxel with Xyosplatin(sorry sp). He made it clear he wanted to try anything and everything.

                In the world of EC, we seen to see some of the worst. Cancer is overfunded, no one seems to stay patient focused. I wonder what it will take to turn this big mess around. I guess a "miralce". Cancer shouldn't be a problem in this day and age, when will the medical world wake up
