Here you'll find out how I deal with my recurrent retroperitoneal liposarcoma.

I signed a new protocol yesterday. If I am eligible after all the screening tests I start a drug called GDC-0941 on Monday. In the laboratory, this drug "inhibits a key protein called PI3-kinase that stimulates cancer cells to grow." This is a phase-one, dose-escalation study that has been going on for about a year. This means that I will be getting a higher dose than the first participants. Hopefully this is the one that will slow the growth of the stubborn tumors ;-)
