Re: Treatment Plan

      Thanks for sharing your story… it helps those of us who are in similar situations.  I have Stage IV metastatic melanoma and am in a clinical trial through the Angeles Clinic (John Wayne Cancer Center) with Taxotere and YM155.  Schedules seem to be similar to yours.  So far I’ve had one "progress" scan that showed no new cancer, and a very slight growth in the existing turmor.  So, we are moving forward with the trial, hoping and praying for the best.  My best to you…
