Results: Update

It's with a very strong and determined heart that we share Mom's 6 month scan results. The fight must go on.
The tumor on the back of her neck has shown to be active, so we continue the fight with radiation to shrink it followed by another series of chemo to hold it back. We've been there many times before; Mom says this is simply her "medicine" so she can keep living. Her cancer is treatable so we will go on and fight hard!

Thank you so much for all of your love, positive thoughts and prayers of strength.
We appreciate you all so very much. Stay positive and find joy and appreciate every day!

Results Pending

Friday to Wednesday seems like SUCH A LONG TIME to WAIT for Mom's 6 month scan results. I know this is a very difficult thing for Mom to sort out because results could be good or bad. We've been here several times before. This is why she's trying to be positive; but every day is a gift and it's difficult to keep things in proper perspective under these circumstances. It's scary. I keep telling Mom these tests and scans are a good thing because she's under the microscope and that's how she's been able to continue her fight for so long.

Keep Calm.
Find it.
Fight it.
One day at a time!
