I am going to University of California San Francisco to add Dr. Rugo to my breast cancer team. I am stage 4 and have tried 4 types of chemo with little to no success. Does anyone see Dr. Rugo or know anything about UCSF? I am in Idaho.

      Tamara,

      I have not had chemo, so I cannot say i know what it is like. You must be very brave and must love life and your family very much. You are in my prayers.

      Mimi. You have said you are back at it is your diagnosis unusually coded? I'm about to head in to first round.

      The reason I am getting second opinion is because agressive grade 3 tumor had no response to Taxol in neo adjunctive ... So I do not want to do Taxol again as part of chemo...
