Update #14

Great news. Scan came back with awesome results! They showed no new growth anywhere in the body. All that’s visible from the CT scans is on the lungs. And there, the nodules have either shrunken or stayed the same (about 4mm in size) Liver and colon are still all clear. Basically this is the second […]

Update #6

Hi team. All went well yesterday. We stayed overnight for monitoring and got home today.

From here, we’ll start meeting with the liver and […]

Update #5

Hi Everyone! I’ve been meaning to send an update for awhile, but things have been in flux and I’ve been waiting until it’s all sorted out. Unfortunately, it’s still up in the air, but I wanted to give an update of where we are and the plan forward. Basically, we’ve had some struggles getting a […]
