I almost feel guilty about posting this, but there is so much bad news, I just wanted to share some good news. My husband’s CT scans and brain MRI from yesterday showed NED!! It’s been almost a year of no new growth and 27 months after his stage IV diagnosis. He did Yervoy May-July 2011, had multiple surgeries, and has been on Zelboraf for almost 18 months. It is possible to defy the odds.
I went back and looked at some of your posts from the first year after your husband’s diagnosis. What a journey the two of you have had. And how wonderful the place on the road you are at today. This story does give all of us tremendous hope as we face our own future roads. All the very best to both of you!!
I thought I had already said “Great news, thanks for sharing it” but I guess I didn’t. Hmm, I think it’s Zel brain. I’m so happy for you– and absolutely nothing to feel guilty about (although I do know what you mean).
