We have moved to the new house and I have been without a connection until today. My apologies for not getting back to you with details about MDX-1106 but I will do my best to get some answers out to you over the weekend.
We killed off the last pesky pockets of resistance with CyberKnife surgery on Monday and hopefully I will be on a cancer vacation for a while. The MDX-1106 has produced ‘dramatic results’ in my body and the team at Beth Israel is very excited and optimistic about all the news, as am I. Long term durability is always the question, but for now, this is the first bit of great news we have had in a long, three-year period. And we’ll take it. The cancer is on the run right now and this drug, the love and support of my family and friends, my mental state, and my physical well-being have all helped in the battle.
2009 was a really, really rough year for us. We lost our home, my cancer spread, I underwent three brain surgeries, and HDIL2. But I’m still here.
