It has been a challenging year and the many hurdles that all on this site have crossed is a testament to the "never guit" mindset of the survivor and care giver.
I am fotunate enough to share the results of our first scan on sutent. All three nodules in the lungs have shown interval response to therapy with decreased size of the pulmonary metastasis. The decreases are 10mm-6mm, 8mm-3mm and 7mm-5mm respectfully. This is after 1 round of HDILD then 3 x 14 on, 7 day off cycle of 50mg doses.
With the promising news from Nivolumab trials, immunotherapy and others, there is great reason to be optomistic about the future. While the side effects can be difficult, they are manageable in most instances, resulting in a good quality of life.
On a separate note, I watched the Jimmy V espn speach fron 1993 today on you tube, never get's old. "Smile, Cry, and Love every day", good stuff,!
Love and prayers to all during the holiday season!
