Is That all There Is?

Vampboy’s MRI scans came back with “no evidence of disease” yesterday. So, for today, we can rest a bit easier knowing that we’ve bitch-slapped cancer into the corner.

Sadly it is short-lived, as we know that the fact there is a corner that cancer can run to means we aren’t out of the woods yet. The question is — will we ever be? One of the first patients with AT/RT treated with this protocal has died, after relapsing 5 years after treatment. While others have survived beyond that, there aren’t enough to capture the “survival rate”. One cancer cell is all it takes to go from a cure to “buying time before the inevitable”.

Time is the big question — but we were given a little more today. We’ll take it.
