After months and months of not knowing if I was going to get to go on this Immunotherapy , I got the call yesterday evening saying we were on for today !
This is a phase two trial . I have not been involved with a trial before and have been astonished at the amount of blood tests , CT scans , ECGs etc etc , the commitment of research nurses and my wonderful Chemo nurses who have been keeping me going for over five years . It is a real jump into the unknown but since I have been through many of the available drugs , I feel chuffed to be given this opportunity , am befuddled with gratitude to my Oncology Prof and his team for sticking up for me .
Over the years , I have learnt so much from you all , often laughing , rather than crying at the mess we have all found ourselves in through no fault of our own . Mostly marveling at us all .
What a bugger it all is . I have lost many friends in the last five years but nevertheless so many of us are living well beyond the original diagnosis , that I wanted the Oldies and the Newbies amongst us to know that I'm still fighting my corner .
Accentuate the positives ! The only way xx
