Good news!

13 Jul

This morning my family and I got some very good news! We heard the results of the MRI and it showed that the tumor had stopped growing and might have even shrunk a little. This means that the chemo has been working well and that I’m clear to go onto the next step of my treatment. The next step is called the maintenance period where I have chemo for a month straight and then have two weeks off. This maintenance period lasts for almost a year.  The next big step, however, of my treatment will be getting a port later this month before I start the next stage of treatment. Getting a port means that I don’t have to get IVs when I go to the hospital.

Thank you to everyone who has been following my journey. I really appreciate your support.
