Topic: Mom recently diagnosed

Hi there,

I came across this website back in February but was scared to return.  My mom was diagnosed with cc in Feb.  She did not respond to initial treatment so we have been transferred to USC where she will hopefully begin a clinical trial next week.  We're just waiting to see if she meets certain criteria before we get the green light.  The waiting is driving us crazy.  It seems like it took forever to get her transferred. She hasn't received chemo since mid April. I feel better being at USC because they have offered more treatment options but I still feel helpless.   

I'm happy to be back on this site.  It's important and helpful to hear all of the encouraging news from members.  My thoughts and prayers go out to everybody here.

Danni....welcome back.  This is not an easy diagnoses to digest, but we, as a group, have conquered much.  You are in the right place.
