Thanks Gavin, for posting this. Gives us more hope for future developments, too.
And Randi: I think that "2%" quote should probably be followed by words something like "of the patients diagnosed with advanced, inoperable stages" or something like that. Remember this is TV news and they like sensationalism. They've done quite a bit in the year since I was diagnosed. When I first started surfing the net, I found a site that said about 93% of all patients will be dead within 5 years. Someone, I can't remember who, but it was one of the moderators, posted new percentages a month or so ago that gives us a 20% of living for a while with this. I plan on being one of the 20% and by then hopefully they will have more of a cure.
I'm going to talk to my onc about this, but since the tumor in my body is not in the bile ducts, I don't know that they can try this. But I'll go to Indiana if I have to!!!!
