Complete Remission!


I posted here some months ago when our world fell apart and a number of you lifted us and helped us to get our head around the shocking news. We then had the bombshell that no watch and wait, FCR was starting the following week...

Well we are through the other side and on Wednesday we got the fantastic news that Mark is in Complete Remission! Lymph nodes all back to the size they should be (Mark 'HAD' SLL not CLL) and no cells found in Bone Marrow :)

To say we are elated is an under statement.

I thank each and everyone of you for the support you provided to us, many of you personally messaged us and I am still humbled by your kindness

Mark will post himself here soon... once he comes down from the high and gets 5 mins... His phone is constantly ringing with well wishes from friends and family!

Thank you all, I hope that I can one day offer support to others like you all did for us!

Time to live again :)

Thank you Lisa xxxxxxx

Thanks Speckly xxxxx

Great news.My husband is just at the start of CLL, diagnosed with prostate cancer from same blood test but we are really positive. He is a month over open surgery to remove lymph nodes from abdomen and groin....awaiting results to find if they were coming from CLL or Prostate. We don't know anyone else who has both but we are trusting all will be well. It's good to know your good news. These things make us look at life differently and to appreciate all the lovely things around us. We have an appointment with CLL specialist on Thurs. Up till now it has been 'watch and wait'

Hi Lisa,

Summer5 in reply to PaulaS

Thanks Paula xxxx lots of love xxxx

Brilliant news ... I'm just approaching my last two rounds of FCR and am very much looking forward to being out the other side in time for summer. Always good to hear of the success of others travelling the same path. x

Summer5 in reply to jibs60

Hey jibs60 xxxx thank you so much and good luck with the next two rounds, hope you are coping ok, judging by Mark's experience it's tough going but so worth it, I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers xxxxx

And finally a massive thank you to each and everyone one of you, you've no idea how much we appreciate your support, I know our 'journey' would have been much more difficult without your support and kind words.

I've not had the honour of meeting any of you but you've been more support to me than you will ever know and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart

Lots of love to you all xxxxxx

You have come through this and are doing well- it gives hope for those of us who are still on watch and wait- have been for 6 years- and the longer I wait the more scared I get. Hopefully ibrutinib will be licensed when I eventually need treatment. Just live your life now and enjoy every moment . Summer - lovely pseudonym!xx

Always good to hear people getting good results from chemo. From someone who went from W&W to the Ibrutinib arm of the RESONATE2 study.

Best Wishes,
