Cathy, where did you have your transplant done at?  I read this article this morning and found it very interesting.  I am going to mention transplant again, at my Dr. appointment this Friday.

Cindy-I had the most amazing treatment at Barnes-Jewish Hospital in St. Louis Mo. with Dr. William Chapman. The man is one of the top CC doctors. I have been contacted by several CC patients who have contacted him and are so impressed by his care. I noticed you are in Indiana so I would definetly consider this a second opinion option.  People who have contacted him have actually talked to him by phone, instead of the usual protocol of setting up appointments and test first, then meeting the doctor.
Please read my story at thetelegraph.com under christmas miracle. Please feel free to email me if you would like to talk or get more info. And PLEASE discuss transplant with a doctor who believes it is an option!!!
Lots of prayers-Cathy

Thanks Cathy! 
I will ask my oncologist about transplant this Friday.  I asked the surgeon previously about it.  He said it was not an option because the tumors would reappear while in recovery.
Thanks for the prayers!

No problems Cathy, you are most welcome. And yes, you are living proof that it works!

Cindy, I hope that you get some good news when speaking with your onc about the possiblity of a transplant. Please let us know how you get on with this.

Best wishes to you both,

Gavin
