Topic: Scan showed good results

Hi all,

I just wanted to share some good news. My mom was diagnosed in June and had three months of chemo (gemzar and tarceva). We just got the results from her scans and they showed a 70% reduction. The tumor on her liver that was 8cm is now 2cm and any other spots they had seen are no longer showing up. She had to go off the tarceva as it caused breathing problems for her, but we are so happy and feel so lucky to finally get some good news. She is completely off everything for the next three weeks (which she is very happy about) while her doctors figure out her next plan of action.

My prayers for everyone here,
Dawn

dldc...  Nice to hear for you Mom to have responded so well to the chemo and I am hoping for her breathing problems to diminish real soon. I am looking forward to hearing from you about the next plan of action to be taken under consideration and I am wishing for your Mom to enjoy the three weeks of relaxation and rest coming her way.
