Re: [MOL] chemotherapy for Stage III colon cancer



Hi!
I don't believe in statistics.  A famous doctor once asked an audience of
doctors for a show of hands; he said who will wager a year's salary on their
estimate of how long one of their cancer patients would live.  He got no
takers.

Love and Hugs,

Martha
