Good morning Jeff
According to my wife ( Computer Geek ), our board will not allow me to paste the entire link. You have to carefully highlight those numbers and paste into your address bar.
I am able to cut and paste the entire link into email if it doesn’t work for you.
Let me know if I can help.

Tom, can you provide an accurate link to the information you have on Dr. Canady from John Hopkins. I don’t seem to be able to retrieve.
JeffDecember 5, 2007 at 5:57 pm #17786devoncatParticipant
I am so sorry for this information. We all had such hope. I hope Katia comes back so we can support her.
KrisDecember 5, 2007 at 3:23 am #17785
Sad news from Johns Hopkins site on patients who recently underwent Dr. Canady’s surgery. One of these patients was Katia’s father.
To get the above link to work, please copy and paste the whole link.
Please note, this is secondhand information, I have not spoken to any of these people personally.

Here is the video news coverage link to Dr. Canady’s reinstatement.November 28, 2007 at 1:54 am #17783neillParticipant
Seven months ago, only days after being diagnosed with terminal bile duct cancer that had consumed over 75-80% of her liver, my wife Cindy asked, ‘When God grants me my miracle I want you to do me one favor.’
With tears in my eyes I answer, ‘Anything!’
With full confidence that somehow, somewhere, God was going to have that massive, foot long tumor removed completely from her body, she proceeded to ask, ‘Make me a website to give others HOPE.’
Last week, my beautiful wife of 35 years celebrated the best Thanksgiving ever with her family on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Her latest MRI, taken only two weeks ago, shows an almost totally regenerated liver free of cancer. Her tumor markers remain perfect. God has granted Cindy her miracle. He led us to Dr. Jerome Canady. Her website, http://www.curedoflivercancer.com, has literally saved the lives of scores of others from all parts of the nation and the world.
I highly recommend that you also checkout Cindy’s website http://www.cindysmiracle.com to see our full story. You will be able to clearly see how God intervened in all of these situations to destroy the works of the devil! The words written in Romans 8:28 will literally jump out of the Bible!November 28, 2007 at 1:42 am #17782neillParticipant
For all concerned;
Dr. Jerome Canady was called before a peer review committe on Wednesday,Nov. 21st made up of doctors and hospital staff at Monongehela Valley Hospital. The reason behind calls for his suspension and removal from the hospital staff was a simple word called complacency. Anytime you step out of the ranks, you can expect that others will shot at you. An old core group of doctors did not want a world-class, innovative surgeon operating in their midst! Plain and simple.
Praise God, thanks to much prayer around the world, Dr. Canady has been fully reinstated as a onocological surgeon at Mon Valley! You maybe asking, “How can Dr. Canady succeed in these intricate, almost “impossible” procedures when others haven’t or ever wouldn’t even dream to try. The answer is “faith”. This is what makes Jerome Canady so unique. He believes that God has endowed him with the confidence and ability to get the job done. Using a plasma beam catheter, that he invented, he can successfully removed ever vestige of cancerous tumor at the cellular level that have wrapped around the arteries and veins of the liver, bile duct, pancreas, colon, stomach, and esophagus. Since my wife’s last surgery on July 10th, Dr. Canady has successfully removed “inoperable” tumors from many others who were deemed “unresectable” by top cancer surgeons/doctors from all over the world. Did some patients die? Unfortunately and regrettably, yes. All of Dr. Canady’s patients are extremely “high risk”, but the vast majority survive and gratefully go on with their lives knowing that God has granted them a second chance.
Miracles still happen!

Tom, I surely wish you and your Dad the best. I personally Have no opinion of Dr. Canady one way or the other. He Basically stated that he uses 3-D imagery to determine the best approach or if surgery is possible. All surgeons use 3-D imagery. There is obvious differences of opinion in the medical arena. But then again isn’t that how break throughs and progress come about? Especially if toes have been stepped on or if someone was not included on the invention side of his life. Well, I said I had no opinion but gave one away. I pray that he can extend life as professionally as other surgeons. I guess my sources for making decisions have to come from somewhere other than tabloid news.
Again, I’m talking about his professional ability as a surgeon not that he was denied priveleges at a hospital; as if there was incompentency issuses the news would be more on the lines of his right to practice medicine period. I wish Your Dad the best care and treatment possible! I opologize if my earlier post felt like I was attacking, personal feelings of how much damage news media can do to a person probally seeped through a bit.

When considering any surgeon, any chemotherapy, any other way of treating this disease, information is the key in the decision making process.
I consider all information including Newspaper Articles, Radio or TV, Clinical Data, Peer Review, patients sharing their own experiences, to be valuable tools in reaching the goal of making an informed decision.
MarionsNovember 24, 2007 at 7:15 pm #17779
I’m sorry to hear that your husband was unable to proceed with surgery. Thank you for sharing your information and your experience. I have also read other members posts that speak of how caring and dedicated Dr. Canady is to his patients, that is great to hear. I know my father’s experiences with doctors have mostly been rushed and impersonal, so it is nice to hear that there are still some doctors out there that take the time to get to know their patients, it means alot.
I hope your husband recovers quickly from the surgery.
Best wishes to you,
TomNovember 24, 2007 at 7:08 pm #17778marionsModerator
So sorry to hear about Tommy’s cancer being more widespread than originally thought to be. Surgery is the only way of determining the true extent of this disease.
I am sending my best wishes to Tommy and you and hoping for a speedy recovery from the surgery and for the antibiotics to take hold of the infection.
MarionsNovember 24, 2007 at 7:01 pm #17777
Jeff, I feel that my posts are being taken in the wrong context, I am not trying to persuade people not to see Dr. Canady, I have never said that. In fact, my family has already contacted Dr. Canady and he agreed to see my dad, but I felt that I needed to do a little research before jumping into such a serious surgery. My wife and I both just had one of those “gut” feelings that we needed to get more information before sending my dad to see Dr. Canady, that’s all.
As far as following “media hype”, that is exactly why I have posted the links. I know that it is so easy for people that feel there are no options available to jump into something based on what they have heard on TV or the internet. The links that I posted were based on facts, I only wanted people to know that Dr. Canady has had his privileges revoked on more than one occasion and by more than one hopsital. These are important facts to know when choosing a surgeon. I have received emails with words of appreciation from some members for posting the information that I have found, so I am glad to hear that is has been helpful for some.
This site is for the sharing of information, family experiences, what works, what doesn’t work, etc. I am not trying to “pressure” anyone to post about their experiences, I just simply wanted to let them know that I and others would be interested to hear about their experiences if they wish to share. Time is of the essence with this disease and anyone that is willing to post about their recent experience helps us all.
Wishing everyone the best.

My husband, Tommy West, is home and recovering from surgery. I am happy to answer any questions concerning Dr. Canady to anyone out there. Dr. Canady is A VERY CARING SURGEON. Tommy’s cancer is more widespread than we thought, so Dr. Canady was not able to remove the cancer in Tommy’s liver this time. Tommy has changed his chemo drugs to gemzar and tarceva. He is still recovering from the surgery and is on IV antibiotics for a blood infection. We are going to do whatever we have to do to fight this awful cancer.
Keeping the faith,
