As most of you know, Jay was first diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in January, 2019. After 7 months of chemo, he got a clear PET scan and celebrated remission. Unfortunately, in early December 2019 he had a CAT scan that revealed the cancer had come back. Today, December 19th, he was admitted to Jewish Hospital for three days of intensive chemo. His treatments will culminate in stem cell harvesting/bone marrow transplant hopefully by spring. We intend to use this page as a way to keep everyone updated on his progress, as Jay has an extremely large network of supportive family and friends. We would encourage you to create an account so you can leave positive messages of encouragement.
While it's been a crazy three months for the rest of the world, Jay has been recovering well from his transplant. This past Monday he met with his oncologist to discuss his most recent PET scan, and it was noted that there are still a few spots of concern. Jay will begin nine months of "maintenance" chemo starting tomorrow. After three months he will get another PET scan to ensure that this course of treatment is working. As always, he appreciates everyone's concern and support!
