About this blog

In January of 2006 my wife was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Blue Round Cell Tumor, also known as DSRCT, which is a rare and extremely aggressive form of cancer, usually with poor prognosis for survival.

After months of extensive chemotherapy, several operations, and more chemotherapy we thought she might have an actual chance of surviving. After two weeks of cautious hope our world was destroyed yet again when a scan showed that new tumors were growing in both lungs. There were no more medical means to cure her disease, and eventually she died on January 9th 2007.

To help others who are in a similar situation, my wife and I made this blog, where her entire treatment course is described in detail as a kind of diary. The blog also contains a short description of all the medication that has been part of the treatment.

Rehospitalisation for bloodtransfusion (and more?) to better Mette's general health so she is ready for operation.
After a scan there is suspicion of tumors in the liver, but thorough examinations reveal no cancer tumors.
New plan: Sometime soon Mette will undergo surgery of the right lung, then of the left thigh a week later, then two weeks of recovery, before a minimum of four rounds of CIVE chemotherapy.
