I have also spoken to the Dr mentioned in this article, he tells me that he has treated cc patients - one from the UK..
My Dad is currently commuting to Germany from the UK for treatment (he is having dendritic cell treatment, you can learn more from our posts - my dad is 'Geoff') My dad tells me that he did mention gene therapy to his oncologist here in the UK and his Dr in Germany and it was not highly rated for effectiveness with cc, apparently it has been more effective on head and neck cancers. However please do not take my word for it, I have not had the time recently to do much research on this, and research is moving at a fast pace.
Your sister is in a strong position in that she has been able to have a resection. Surgery can be curative depending especially if good margins were achieved. I understand her reservations re chemo - you are wise to consider all the options, sometimes the side effects can be worse then the cure. My Dad has done well on DC therapy. I wish your sister a trouble free recovery from the surgery, in time her strength will return, until then she is probably not feeling up to making such big decisions.
Take care, Jules
