After having problems with anemia, weight loss, blood clots and other typical chemo reactions, we now finally got some good news. The PET scan showed 90% reduction in the size of Tom's tumor and no more malignant activity in the lymph nodes. Blood work is good. Weight seem to be stabilized at 158 (still 17 pounds short of his usual weight).
He is taking a break now, but would continue chemo in a week for 5 more weeks plus have daily radiation. Surgery to follow.


Tom, 37 y.o.
Stage 3: T3 N1 M0

That is wonderful news for you both! My brother just got news yesterday that the tumor has shrunk by 2 centimeters and no sign that the cancer has spread so he is praising God. Will pray you and your husband gets much needed rest this week before he has to start again with the chemo.
May God bless you both.

Praying for continue healing, Sandra
