          I will pray for you and your husband and put you on our Church prayer list. I had Stage 4 cancer myself and it has been a long hard road but it is possible to endure with God's help!

            Sorry my friend, I am 10 years out and I cannot swallow or talk very well. I am looking for the same type of info. If I or you find something lets let each other know. I have heard of stem cells from swine being used to regererate damaged tissue but I can't find out any more about how to get into a research program as a voluteer. Anyway I'll do my best to let you know if I find out something of value.
