Good News and TGIF

Earlier this week, I had my periodic CT scan to determine whether or not the chemotherapy I’ve been receiving is continuing to work. I just received word from MSKCC moments ago that indeed many of the tumors continued to shrink compared to my last imaging procedure in August (which showed a decrease in tumor size almost across the board). Importantly, there weren’t any new lung metastasis.

Clearly, this is very good news. In a perfect world, one would like to see all the tumors completely disappear. That would be highly unusual, so I will gladly accept serial decreases in the tumors from period-to-period.

This coming Tuesday, I should receive my chemotherapy doublet (provided that my blood counts are sufficient).

That’s all for now…short and sweet…as I am going to hug my family and enjoy the weekend.

  1. Delighted for you. You are an inspiration for cancer patients and especially for someone like me with a similar diagnosis. Toronto, Canada salutes you!

  2. This is great news! You are on my mind almost daily at the moment as I am.working woth 2 inventors at my new employment who have developed therapeutic antibodies specifically for HPV-induced HNC and I am find a company that would pick up the end of discovery under SRA and development/commercialization under license. Still early but the mAbs are humanized, epitopes identified. Meanwhile, I am happy that you will enjoy this beautiful Fall week end! (Does your daughter still ride? Perfect weather for riding-….we are horse nuts!)
