Thank You Junebugjelly! I am in Oregon and he is in California. I am heading down there at the end of this month to stay as long as I can and will be going to the doctor with him throughout this process. I just needed some base information and hearing from a survivor helps alot with confirming everything I have learned so far that he isn't comfortable telling me at this time. He actually told me that he had started chemo almost two months ago and then changed his story to he wasn't starting till June so I am not exactly sure what is really happening at the moment. He did say they told him that if the chemo didn't work he had 6 months to 2 years to live. So I am guessing I will pretty much have to hope he makes it until I can get down there and see what is going on! Thank you for all the information!View Thread
