Some encouraging news amongst the sad losses lately....


Recommended Posts

My mom had follow-up ct after 3 rounds of cisplatinum for recurrant sclc. Some of the tumors have shrunk, and she began another round of cisplatinum and another drug (I think it's cpt-ll) on day one, day 8 is just the other drug, then two weeks off, then start another round again. Except for having horrible headaches on the first day of tx, she feels pretty good. The diareha gets pretty bad, and did make her weak, but overall she has been doing what she normally does! After two more rounds of the above regimen, she will have another ct.

Many continued prayers for all of those affected by this disease.
