Review for Chordoma Foundation, Durham, NC, USA
3 months ago I learned that the lower back pain I've been having was due to a Chordoma tumor growing in my lumbar spine. Part of the emotional trauma of this diagnosis was hearing how rare this type of cancer is. My expectation was that there would be very little work going on to develop treatments and cures for Chordoma. It has been a tremendous surprise to discover the Chordoma Foundation, both in terms of the wealth of information I've been provided as well as the promising research that is under way in large part due to the efforts of this foundation. It has given me confidence that my treatment plan is optimal and hope that there will be even better options available in the future.
