New Study Started

Dylan started the Perifosine study on Monday night. His blood counts all came back good. So far so good, a few dashes to the bathroom in the night but apart from that he seems fine. His root canal is still bothering him, he goes back on Friday to hopefully finish it off. Dylan went to school yesterday but came home early due to tooth pain, he's at school today and so far we have had no calls. You may have noticed many new kids that I have added to the house heroes page. I want to congratulate Karli on getting results yesterday...cancer free! Karli was the 39th child on the study. It is amazing the treatment they are doing here for Retinoblastoma, there are so many children coming from all over the planet for this right now, it's proving to be very successful. I am not that knowledgeable about Retinoblastoma (cancer of the eye) but I do know they are doing a treatment called intra-arterial chemotherapy, that targets the cancer and they access them via the groin believe it or not!
