Friends of The Duke
Organized by: Robert Reitzen
As many of you probably know, our wonderful John Wayne suffered from liver cancer in 2005 and unfortunately as of January 2016 he has been re-diagnosed. The doctors found tumors on his liver. As of now the best course of action is to get Duke on a liver transplant list in the interim to maintain his health he will need chemoembolization treatments several time per year until a donor for the liver is located. Although, we are hoping to find a surgeon who is willing to do a resection if the treatments can shrink the tumors enough.
