You have no idea how incredibly happy I was to get your update. Not just to hear your "voice" (which by the way, you are one incredibly, gifted writer), but to read the "miracle" that has once again transpired in your life. Yes, you my friend, are nothing short of a miracle. To hear that you have had a complete response to this trial drug, is so amazing--but let's be honest, words really can't describe it. I am OVER THE MOON for you and your family. Just happiness, tears of joy, and praise and thanks to God for keeping you here.
I know the journey isn't over, but I have always thought that if anyone could do it, it would be you. I have never doubted in my mind for even a second that you would get to remission again--call it a "third" or "fourth" shot at life again! God needs you around still, and I'm so glad he does. Thanks for inspiring us all, especially us other fellow melanoma warriors. I have so much hope that the medicine and research we have now will lead to better, more durable treatments, maybe even a cure!
I will miss you at the gala in a couple of weeks, but don't you worry, I will be spreading your good news to everyone I know! :)
Hugs and prayers always,
