Thank you, Nate. All one can do is the best they can. Each person has their own unique biochemistry; however, there may be some similarities with other close family members. Yes, there are trials and studies ad infinitum. There are new meds discovered daily, but the candid facts are that the FDA process takes too long and the cost of purchase of meds astronomical to bring life-saving meds to patients. I would like to see more money pumped into the system to save more lives and a closer look by the FDA at the costs of bringing them to market.

Thanks, but I suspended myself from Facebook, because I couldn’t keep up with that and my daily administrative issues and health issues. Additionally, my wife passed from brain cancer two years ago, and I’m still snorkeling through paperwork related to her death.

Hello @warrens Nice to make your e-acquaintance here. I was sad to read of the loss of your wife from brain cancer. I lost my wife to the same this past July. She fought for 14 years and it is tough to comprehend at times that it is over.

I send you strength, courage, and peace!
