Hi, Apologies if this is a bit long. I am actually writing this on behalf of my sister. She is 79 yrs old! (Knowing that, this is the point at which interest in helping her ceases !) However, she is a very FIT 79, she has just come back from a long trip to the Amazon !) It has been discovered that she has advanced endometrial cancer 2.5 months ago at the Royal Free. They say she should be referred to the UCH and their MD Team will decide what treatment to use to try and at least stop the disease from advancing further and at least slowing it down. One Oncologist at the Royal Free did say that she would be able to tolerate the chemo because she is strong. A Gynae there (who never even met her!!) decided NOT to offer her treatment at all. Her decision was based entirely on her date of Birth in her notes. Hence she heard no more and her GP rang her once to discuss end of life arrangements!!
We would really like her to be referred to Dr. Banarjee at the Royal Marsden, but are experiencing resistance to do this.. and time is marching on...ANY tips would be most gratefully received
