Kathy's CA19-9 was 40,820 when she started his treatment, this week her number is 33 (below 35 is considered "normal"). I have his therapy all documented and now am tracking 4 Stage IV PC patients of his to...

      I can not recommend Dr. Chue in Seattle (Lifespring Cancer Center) more strongly. I've met a stage IV lung cancer patient with many mets that he has been able to get cancer free. My wife started with him as a stage IV pancreatic cancer patient with a CA19-9 of 40,820 and today has a CA19-9 of 49 after 7 months of treatment. Good Luck. murf_lef at firenza-llc dot com Murf

        My wife, Kathy, is a Stage IV pc patient using a therapy from Dr. Ben Chue in Seattle. He is very willing to work with your oncologist to have them administer the "Chue Protocol" for your loved one. Kathy is 58 and was diagnosed on Dec. 23, 2013. After testing (CT, needle biopsy & PET Scan, CA 19-9 = 23,052) she had one full dose of folfirinox at Kaiser in Calif. but they held out no hope for her. Hundreds of hou...

              Feeling weak but just went on a 4 week chemo break. Dr. Chue's protocol is continuing to show it's muscle as last week Kathy's CA 19-9 was measured at 68. So down from 40,820 to 68 in 15 weeks of treatment. She still feels all of the chemo related issues that everyone else has but the progress in driving the tumor smaller has been good. Send me a private message with your email address and I'll send you a copy of her...

                    Karen, Glad your numbers went down! My If you or a loved one are reading this wife's numbers have continued to drop since she left Folfirinox and started the "Chue Protocol" (Dr. Ben Chue of Lifespring Cancer Center in Seattle). She's had 6 treatments and has seen her CA 19-9 drop from 40,820 to 3,248 this week. Also the chemo is much easier to tolerate even though she gets it every week. The protocol also has suppo...

                      Melissa, Please do not delay, get your husband to Dr. Ben Chue in Seattle, now. My wife is Stage 4 PC and on the "Chue Protocol" she's seen her CA19-9 (Cancer Tumor Marker) DECREASE from 40,820 to 3,500 on just 5 treatments and is completely off her morphine. There is a Canadian patient there who started with a CA 19-9 of over 218,000, Stage 4 PC with multiple mets, his CA 19-9 is now 84 and his PET scan is complete...
