10 years post diagnosis, on a trial, it's working

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while. Rocky summer, trying to stabilise the disease. Anyway, here I am, I'm 3c, BRCA1, in my 10th year, several recurrences, on a trial which is working! BIBF? Cyclophosphamide and nintenib daily pills. The nintenib could be a placebo but given my symptoms(non itchy rash) think l may be on the real thing. And first results after 2 cycles, CA125 halved, which is good. So onwards eh ladies! Have a good day, Merylx
