I was just looking at it.

Hi,Gavin,

It is a very good development for us the CCA patients as a whole.
Base on 20 articles that I read, I think radioembolization and the other development to follow in the radiation field may lies the good fortune that our members are long wishing for-- to extend and provide a more tolerable and a better quality of life even it is not a cure.It will buy us a lot of good time,both for intra and extra hepatic CCA patients;The next one they are working on is proton and heavy ion therapy(according to the research,it will provide MUCH HIGHER radiation delivery to the tumor site while decreasing  SUBSTANTIALLY the radiation that affect the surrounding health tissue ,therefore it may not produce any or much less the unwanted side effects as EBRT or even IBRT );they have to refine the process to make it more acceptable from the research to the practical side of commercial usage.
Thanks for that link. Gavin, beside your contribution here, you are also a valuable and indispensable link between UK and the States,for that I thanks you for your tireless effort ;along with the tireless Helen who contributes greatly for the UK as well as provide valuable information and connection for this horrible disease to us in the States,please also say a big thankyou to her for me.
This disease is global;the time is urgent and anyone like you,Helen ,Marion are indispensable for the research and conquer of this disease;and of course our raising star Eli too.
and with all that said,please say hi to your mum for me.Hope the weather continue to allow your mum to go outside and enjoy the fresh air and the smell of the flowers and " the green green grass of home" in the garden.
God bless.

Thank you Percy. Lets hope that much good will come from this work to the great benefit of patients, and thanks also for letting us all know what you say may be coming next. And of course, fingers crossed that much good also will come from that too.

Of course I will say hi to my mum from you as well. These last few days here in Scotland have been what we call scorchers here! Yesterday and today we had the hottest days in Scotland ever since records began back in the 1800's! It reached the balmy temps of 22.9c here! Not as hot as what you guys get over your side of the pond, but for us Scots over here it did not feel like March at all! The tv news here even said today that it was hotter in Scotand than in Egypt and Saudi Arabia right now! I'd get the barbeque out if I had one!!

You take care my friend.

Gavin
