Re: NIH update/articles

I am so excited that this is traveling the globe! I hope that more facilities start doing more research and clinical trials. I want the headlines to say "Success for Millions of Patients"! It is a little depressing when I read or hear the comment of "remember this is just one patient".....I understand that I am just one patient.....for now....but I also understand that there has to be a first patient and I believe wholeheartedly that I am the first of many!!!

Gavin thanks for posting all these links....I so enjoy reading them and adding them to my scrapbook!!

Willow I hope the docs get the attention they so deserve....and continued funding for more research!!

Hugs....Melinda

Re: NIH update/articles

You're gonna need a bigger scrapbook Melinda! I agree too about the one patient comments Melinda, but as you say, there has to be the first patient of any new successful trial, drug, treatment etc and this time it is you! And remember that mighty oaks from little acorns grow as the saying goes! Hope indeed!

While I guess you could think of it as "just one patient," as I understand it, you were the first, and so far only, cholangiocarcinoma patient.

Re: NIH update/articles

Gavin...I am glad you were able to see my tulips. Last evening after the interview we had an amazing hail storm and they and all my other plants were destroyed!! sad

Re: NIH update/articles

Melinda,

Sorry to hear you lost those beautiful tulips.  I too noticed them while watching the video.   Glad I got to see them before they were destroyed.  Not much coming up yet here in Wisconsin.

Melinda you are truly becoming our super star poster lady for CC world wide.  Your story is truly amazing and brings hope to so many.

Love & Hugs,

Re: NIH update/articles

Grrrrr to hail stone storms! I like tulips and have loads of them in my mums garden. We got the same ones that you have planted last year, it said they were black but they seemed to come up sort of dark purple. They're nice and really different to the other ones. Got some good ones called Rembrandt tulips I think and they are a nice mix of red/yellow and white/pink. They stand out but unfortunately we have weather problems hitting them as well..... the wind, and that really wrecks them! Boo!!!

Hugs,

Gavin
