Good news to close out the year

Good news to close out the year

More good news as the year draws to a close. I recently received my flow cytometry tests from Dr. Byrd from my last visit to OSU a few weeks ago. My clone of cancerous B cells that had been climbing at a very slow rate for over 3 years, but had tripled in the 90 days in the prior testing done 3 months ago, has now dropped a bit in the last 90 days. This is only the second time in the last three year that the growth of my cancer has taken a break or preferably a brake, and I am sure happy about that. It is the best possible news for the end of the year.

Stay strong.

We are all in this together.

Thanks Dr. Brian for your update. I found your blog early on when I was diagnosed with SLL back in 2013, and I read your story from the very first posts thru your stem cell transplant & your successful treatment with ibrutinib. I've been on ibrutinib now for 32 months & my treatment is being directed out of the Lymphoma Dept at MDA. When I wonder, "How much longer will this work?," I look at you and say, "Over 4 years and counting for Brian. I can do the same!"

"Stay strong! We are all in this together."
