Positive Energy

Please send positive energy. My good friend Meryl had a growth in her throat which they biopsied today; it ended up being cancerous. I might have this information wrong, but I think it is "squamous cell carcinoma, level IV" She is going to the specialist tomorrow to talk about Chemo and Radiation.


The level IV may be a grade or a stage. Grade 4 would imply that these are very abnormals cells but says nothing of their whereabouts. Stage would mean that this cancer has invaded the underlying tissues, and spread to crucial areas. If that is the case, she will have quite a fight ahead. On the bright side, the cure rate for cancer of the larynx is encouragingly high when compared to other forms of cancers.
