    Susiemargaret I got an oops but it redirected to the web sight.
    Hows your research concerning cancer. I am in the cancer community right now and one of the questions is from tim carey. He had undifferentiated sacorma of the liver at 6 years of age. It is a rare cancer and hard to find info on. He is also trying to find the medical write up about his case. Think you could help?

    Thanks susiemargaret
    I know he is looking for an article that was supposed to have been printed about him and his treatment. I just could not find it. I think he is going to have to contact the DR he had at the time. As far as helping people in other communities it scares me to see some of these questions and they have not seen a doctor. My husband just finished having surgery, chemo and radiation therapy for oral cancer. Now we wait 5 years to see if it is going to return. That is how I became involved in the cancer community. tI would really be nice if a group of cancer experts would take turns either answering questions or directing people in the direction they need to go.
    I believe in the old saying do onto others as you would have them do onto you. In other words help those that need it and hopefully they will pay it forward.
    I wish I had your talent for locating information. That is quite a gift you have.

    have you read the latest exchange from tim? Do you get the feeling he is not being exactly on the up and up.

    susiemargaret replied to worn1's response:
    hello, W --

    yes, there is something weird about this inquiry. i don't see how he expects us to find accurate statistics when he himself says they are all over the place.

    plus, i found his dr with a 30-second google search, http://www.saintfrancis.com/patient/physicianDirectory.aspx .

    he wants to write this book without dr. kirkpatrick knowing about it is my guess. if he wants to sue for some reason (but the guy cured him!), the statute of limitations will be long gone by now.

    your most recent reply to him is exactly what i would say.

    other ideas?
