Topic: My father and mentor
My name is Nicole. I am 27 years old and live in California. My father was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma about 2 years ago. He has had 2 liver resection surgeries and has gone through chemo.
Recently, cancer has developed in his stomach. He has been ruled out for a transplant.
We were told of a treatment called SIRT-Y90, but don't know very much about it. I was hoping to get some insight from others on the website who have been successful with this treatment. Any information that you can provide is so greatly appreciated. I would also love any info on how to fight his insurance company to pay for the treatment, as they have denied him payment since the treatment is so new.
This has been a tough battle, and having to deal with insurance is just something that neither him or my mom should have to deal with.
Thank you in advance.
