Matt is driving Josie to DC tomorrow night to stay over and get her ready for her first treatment on Wednesday morning. Gigi is going along for support.
I spoke to Matt today and he said that the MRI results really confirm that this is the best course of action for Josie. Radiation would have little or no effect at this point. This new drug is designed to turn Josie's immune system against the cancer. The immune system can attack anywhere, but radiation just kills cells in a focused spot. This cancer is spreading. We need this drug to activate Josie's immune system to FIGHT this cancer wherever it is growing. Let's keep up hope that this drug is our miracle! Good luck Josie...be as strong as you've been through all of this! You'll be better soon. Love you.
