Speed is the Issue
A brief update… and an explanation why I have been slow to write update posts recently…
My disease has really taken off into a much more aggressive form with a significant increase in symptoms. It has become pretty rough on both my family & me… I have been working 24/7 with both doctors and scientists on medical options since my last medical update and I am beyond excited to say that I think I now have a cutting-edge plan/option lined up on the near-term table (!!)
But my treatment flowchart changes every few days as my medical situation changes (why I haven’t written a treatment plans blog update). The one thing I unfortunately never planned for/anticipated was the speed of my disease taking off suddenly like this… which really hampers planning. It is driving the ex-project leader in me crazy I assure you! 🙂
It is like trying to navigate a ship to port while being buffeted by gale force winds from ever switching directions… Hopefully we’ll be able to finalize next steps in the next few days and I’ll be able to share the plans then.
I have even more ideas on the table for the mid-term as immunotherapy clinical trial & experimental therapeutic options for MSS-CRC continue to rapidly expand! I am convinced that there will be additional immunotherapy objective responses presented/published in 2017 via novel approaches for MSS-CRC! There is every reason for our community to be hopeful of steady advances!
Thank you for the incredible support I have gotten from all directions – it really does mean a lot! I remain positive because of the planning I and collaborators have done – I think I now have the ideas and resources lined up for cutting edge next steps if we can get my disease stabilized! Now, all I need is time…
