@Brooke1226:  Oh my goodness, my heart goes out to you and your family and extended family. That is just too much for anyone to deal with. I’m terribly sorry and hope you can find comfort in each other. Not sure if you’re into this at all but I’d sage smudge the heck outta the house! Sweep that bad energy out, out, out! Sending you and yours major positive blessings from here on out.

Sorry to hear about all of that. Hopefully everything will turn around for you.

When it comes to metastatic melanoma, a new set of drugs was approved by the FDA in June that is AMAZING with melanoma, so there’s a LOT more hope for treatment than there was even last year. We tested the drugs for several years at my clinic and had several stage IV melanoma patients go completely cancer free, and one in particular has been cancer free for a couple of years now. So… yeah, cool developments in melanoma.

Same thing with colon cancer — nothing specific that’s been approved lately, but there are a ton of treatments we’re working on. Actually, one study we have going combines the above combination with panitumumab and we’ve had drastic reductions in tumor burden in our stage IV colon cancer patients! There’s so much going on for cancer!

I don’t know much about neuro, but there are other nurses here, so they might be able to help you more specifically with hope on those. 

Good luck!!

I’m so sorry OP. My prayers for you and your family. My dad is recovering from a heart attack he had suddenly in October, and my aunt has been fighting a major infection in her leg that could lead to amputation if the antibiotics don’t get it under control. I couldn’t imagine having injured cousins and ill grandparents on top of that as well. Stay strong as much as you can OP, and hopefully things will improve soon.
