Emily had a CT scan yesterday to evaluate the effects of the first two rounds of chemotherapy. The results according to City of Hope: PHENOMENAL!
The tumor has been reduced by half, along with the lymph nodes. The lung lining is greatly improved and there is no evidence that the cancer has spread anywhere else in the body. Most fluid has been cleared from the lungs, which has contributed to Emily feeling stronger and breathing better.
Additionally, we learned this week that MIT identified the driver gene of the cancer, allowing for the possibility of genetic targeted treatments in the future. For now, Emily has been cleared for two more rounds of chemotherapy. Bring it on.
Thank you for all your kind thoughts and prayers. Keep them coming – together we’re going to beat this.
Love to All. Live in the Moment.
