Stage 4 in Sternum

      Hello All,

      Tomorrow marks the final day of treatment for my husbands clinical trial.  We have been met with success and challenges over the past two years.  

      There is still active melanoma present in his sternum.  We understand this is a vey difficult area to treat.   We are not quite sure what to expect after the final clinical trial treatment of Keytruda and Peg interferon.

      Does anybody have ANY suggestions for what our next step shoyd be or how to successfully treat melanoma in the sternum?

      Wishing everybody love happiness and good health!
