Thanks Be To God

I just got the results of my PET/CT, bone and heart scans, and they could hardly be better. I am actually in shock, as I was prepared mentally for, really, anything.

There is no longer a breast mass of any kind--previously cancerous tissue is indistinguishable from healthy tissue. The bones are no longer active at all and present as "treated", showing only scarring from where the cancer used to be. The liver spots can hardly be seen and are not active at all. Nothing in these three areas is measurable.

The only remaining trouble spots are on two lymph nodes, both of whose tumors are now measured by millimeters rather than centimeters and are no longer active.

Folks, we are on our way to that NED party! Four months ago I didn't actually believe that could ever happen, but I'm a believer now. Thank you all SO MUCH for your prayers throughout (and please don't let up yet!).

Oh, and for all you financiers out there, I might look into a "buy" on Immunogen and/or Genentech stock, because this drug is, clearly, amazing. How blessed I am to have access to it.

Suz,
The last time I was this happy was Sept. 14, 1971. Both times had to do with your life and both were miracles For both and all the time in between, I give thanks to God.
love Mom

Suzanne - for you and your family, I could not be happier or more relieved. For the far too many women that will face this fear in the future - I am so grateful for the chance and risk you took in this study. You have not just saved you - but no doubt, many others. Thank you, Suzanne.
hugs - Tracey

wooooooow!!!!! Hope springs! Suzanne, I have to say that I was even more moved by your serene state of being last Saturday BEFORE you knew the results. That peaceful, staring at God and saying "not my will but yours" is what I need to remind myself of everyday. Thank you God! You are a warrior Suzanne. God Bless you and all of your sweet ones that heaven has entrusted to you.
