It's been about 4 months since my recurrence was diagnosed. It's been about 3 months since it was removed and I began the new clinical trial. It's been about a month since I was motivated to post anything. And it's been about 7 hours since I got the first trial results.

To quote the Cedars-Sinai oncologist, "It think it looks really good" and "You've got the best possible case scenario." Yay!

So what are the next steps? Well, first off I'm going to try to chat with the UCSF docs to see if they can (or even want to) convince me that starting some kind of chemo would be very important. Assuming they can't (or won't), then I'll be checking in again at 6 week intervals during the "crucial time" to see if things are being held at bay.



  1. Great News Eric! I have been thinking about you non-stop since seeing you Saturday at the walk and have been saying extra prayers as well - keep on keeping on & beat this thing once and for all!!

    Your Fellow Survivor,


  2. Eric,

    I couldn't be happier for you. From the moment you chose this trial, I've been hoping and praying I read a post like this one. Phew is an understatement!


  3. Great News! I'm so happy to hear it!
