Plan of Attack

Plan of Attack: Project Bye Bye Cancer

We've celebrated Monday's good news of the negative biopsy but fear and reality quickly set in. Don't get me wrong this IS extremely good news, the treatment is working and the cancer does appear to be regressing. However, this type of stomach cancer is a very aggressive mean cancer with high probabilities of returning. The scope and biopsy was done internal so we don't know for sure for sure, if we've got it all under control. So to prevent any surprises and to really stomp this monster Mom's decided to complete another series of chemotherapy treatment.

Project Bye Bye Cancer will begin March 30th and will continue as planned for a 2 day infusion every 3 weeks, for 6 months. This type of chemo is extremely powerful with nasty and/or strange side effects. Mom will most likely loose her hair this time but it's well worth the cause.

She'll be re-scoped in 3 months! Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers! You're all super wonderful and I know Mom could not have made it through without all you do!

We love you!
