|Comment||Thank you very much Dr. Higby. Your answer gave me some encouragement. As having to live with cancer for several years it has always been in the back of my mind and difficult to dismiss. Also the age factor has been a worry but in your answer you gave several options that seem promising. I hope the Doctor I will be seeing doesn't consider my age a factor in my treatment. Thanks again Don|
