Clinical trial

Nathan started the clinical trial for AZD6244 this morning. Still have bloodwork throughout the day. So far he is doing well. He will take this chemo twice a day everyday for possibly up to 26 months if he does well with it and doesn't have tumor progression while on it. Dr G read the scans, the tumors' size appears to be unchanged since Feb scan but the main brain tumor appears to be enhancing more (which means more blood supply feeding tumor) so we are praying this trial helps to keep things stable. Thank you all for your continued prayers! Keep them coming! Lord willing we will come home tomorrow. Then back next week to see Dr Muh, his neurosurgeon.

I am so glad that Nathan was able to begin the trial today. What a welcomed arrival of good news after such a long wait, and what a blessing from God. I will continue to pray that God is with you every step of the way, allowing this new treatment to stabilize/shrink the tumors, with as few side effects as possible. God Bless all of you! Nathan, you're the best and the bravest!
