Sacral Chordoma Patient Discusses Cancer Treatment
Meet Jeffrey Head."I'm grateful to be here today, more than I can say in words," says Jeffrey Head of Southwest Idaho.In 2007, Head started experiencing lower back and neuropathic pain. After a CT-directed biopsy, he was diagnosed with sacral chordoma, a cancer that occurs in just 1 in 3 million people a year."I called my brother-in-law, who is a physician assistant, and he said, 'You need to go to MD Anderson and see Dr. Laurence Rhines. It's the best place in the world for you to be treated.'"After a complete sacrectomy, proton radiation, stereotactic radiation and months of rehabilitation, Head is now able to jog. It's not a fast jog, but for someone without a pelvis it's pretty good. Listen to Head discuss his battle with sacral chordoma, including an amazing reconstructive surgery.
