    I guess we will never know exactly why the chemo failed, they didn't go into much detail about that....

      I'm curious as to if it was a misdiagnosis; doesn't really add up.

        Which part wasn't adding up? If I am reading correctly, he fought for a little over a year ...? Other than colon mets, which are not common, I am guessing the media just took liberty over the timeline to refractoriness.

          Yeah, the colon mets and the timeline. Maybe I missed dates - they made it sound like he was pronounced instantly incurable with no salvage therapy or clinical trials. Probably just the media having its way.
