    Aww Thank You Ceci!
    I will tell you, it has been a long stressful journey, but with the help of my family (husband), and this site I have made it!
    A few weeks ago was my 2 year anniversary.
    I was stable on my chemo of about a year before my doctor sent me to my transplant team. Then it was about 9 months wait after that.
    I also had mets on both sides of my liver, and that is why I was stage 4.

    If Alison ever needs to chat, tell her to look me up on facebook, twitter, or email (tiffanyschwantes@gmail.com).

    :)

    Hi Tiffany, my 42yr old daughter, Alison, is under Dr Shroff’s care. She is starting her chemo Tues in Baton Rouge, as per Dr Shroff’s prescription. You are our role model! We hope to follow in your footsteps. Shroff said to focus on our chemo and look for 6-10 months stabilization with no new growth. My understanding is that Alison’s cholangio has mets. in the liver, with several tumors on both sides, but that it had not spread outside the liver. You are in our prayers for continued success. God bless, Ceci

    Thank you all!
    That is why I wanted to share this interview from my team. A lot of people didn’t really understand everything about it. I feel like this is very easy to understand.
    I’m still feeling good. All liver functions and bili are normal. Had another round of chemo today. They are doing it just to “clean up”. From what I read and understand this is what MDA does for any person that has any type of liver surgery for liver / bile duct cancers.

    Marions- I’m not sure about superstardom. HEHE!

    The super star in this story is my God…who said Yes when doctors said No! I’m just an instrument that He has used to glorify Him. :o)

    I love you all :o)

    Tiff…..You have reached superstardom via this rarely used procedure of a dominio liver transplant. You deserve it. And, I love your doctors too.
