I know some of you from the old ivillage board.  I have ovarian cancer as does a friend of mine.  She is now taking Femara because three chemos have failed her.  Her doctor told her that her cancer was estrogen receptive, but now she has her pathology:
Estrogen receptor............negative
Progesterone receptor......Positive (strong) in less than 10 percent of tumor cells.
Neither of us are familiar with a CD 117 but it does seem that her ovarian cancer is not estrogen receptive as she was told. 
If any of you could help, I will pass the information along to her.
