    My husband is finally getting BRAF. We were trying ipi but his body is shutting down so fast. New tumors show up daily and he is wasting away. He participated on the phase 3 trial but got dacarbazine. Since then he has done one cycle of IL2 and 3 doses of ipi. I hope he gets the drug asap and it works fast.
