my medical oncologist had the report of my CT Scan today and was excited about the results.  Except for one .7 cm new spot all others had either shrunk or disappeared.  He feels very strongly that this immunotherapy drug is working.  He had gotten a note from my Gyno-oncologist who also was very pleased with the results.  I keep thinking should that this is not only good news for me, but for all endomedial cancer sufferers. There is a chance that immunotherapy will work on more types of cancer.

Hugs and prayers to all of you,
