My last scan results were very disappointing. Despite being on chemo, the tumors in my hip, and both lungs continued to grow. The doctor is starting me on new chemo this Monday. It is a new combination, of chemo I’ve already had. The doctor says it has a one in ten chance of working. If that doesn’t work, I will try experimental drugs. If nothing works, I have a life expectancy of six months to a year.”
