  • Hi there... I don't know about Clear Cell but I do know what it's like to have peritoneal cancer which is not an easy disease is it? I hope someone on here can give you some information directly related to the cell.. but, in the meantime, I send you my heartfelt good wishes. x x

  • Hi, Tarouza.

    I have clear cell, stage IV.

    My first line chemo was carbo and taxol but it has not worked.

    The second line chemo is Avastin and Caelyx. I'm still on this chemo, and I'll make a pet scan next 10th to see the results. In January first scan showed residual tumours shrinking.

    I think you may talk to your onc about genetic screening of your tumour. With the genome of your tumour your onc may recommend a different chemo, maybe something used in another kind of cancer that has the same genetic problem.

    I have sent a biopsy of my tumour to USA to make this exam. I have made this through the Clearity Foundation (www.clearityfoundation.org) wich is a non profile entity dedicated to ovarian cancer research.

    The Clearity Foundation has a grant program for people without health insurance, so you will pay less for the exams. And they offer free consulting to your onc with their scientists, when the results arrive.

    My onc will receive the tumour profile in one month, and he is excited because he has said it may open news ways of treatment to fight my cancer, if the second line chemo fails.

    I wish you good luck with your next treatment.

    Hugs,

    Fernanda
