Treatment Update

Morning all, thought we’d give everyone a quick update now that I am further into treatment. Positive for the week is the MRI for my brain came back clear so we remain focused on treating the main neuroendocrine tumour on my cervix and the secondary tumours in 3 surrounding lymph nodes. With 2 rounds of high dose chemo completed, I started radiation on Wednesday which is week-daily for the next 5 weeks. I also have a lower dose chemo every Wednesday to keep the cells active for the radiation. Once this is completed, I have bracky therapy (internal radiation, day surgery, spinal block) twice a week for 2 weeks. Then I have two more rounds of the high dose chemo. If we don’t hit any delays with my health, this should mean treatment should finish in June. We then wait 4-6 weeks for everything to take affect, during this time we cross everything, pray and hope it has worked it’s magic, then have all the scans again. We can’t thank everyone enough for all their support and generosity. The food, care of children, transport, texts, calls etc truely do make the world of difference. Special thanks to Tracey Paterson for coordinating the ‘Gather my grew’ app, who is doing an outstanding job assisting us to manage everything. We still have a long road head and just want to thank you for your continued support again. Much love, Clare x
