I got the results of my latest MRI this morning and all is good. I have recently passed the 5 year survivor mark. The support of family, friends, and others that I have never met, have made this possible. I am into my tenth month of daily chemo, and handling it pretty good. Much better that I handled the first 14 months back in 2008, 2009. Still having some problems with my right side, but nothing terrible.
As I mentioned in earlier blogs, we were collecting money for the Angels Among Us celebration at Duke in North Carolina. This money is used for brain cancer research at Duke. Our team raised $2800 for this cause, and a total of $2,015,000 was raised to help find a cure for brain cancer. We traveled to Duke for this event. It was great to see other survivors, to see my former Doctor’s, nurses and hospital staff. Survivors are honored and the fallen are remembered. It was a wonderful event, but also so sad to meet some of the families who have lost.
It’s just a matter of time before a cure is found for brain cancer. Progress is being made every day. I thank God each day for allowing me to survive this long.
Take care, Jamie
