Update on mum

Appointment as expected. Results stage 4 cancer that has spread to pleura. Only option is chemo and clinical trial. Not positive for EGFR or ALK. The only genetic testing they do in uk. Other countries way ahead and do more genetic tests but probably too costly here and no drugs licensed to treat other mutations. Appt with professor in Liverpool now next Friday to discuss options.

All we can do is hope and pray mum is strong enough for treatment and fights this. X

Hello Wendy

You will have more testing if you can have your mother accepted into the Lung Maxtrix trial. It is personalised medicine.

Good luck with your mother's treatment.
