Update to share with you guys.

I had my latest MRI last Thursday, I just got back from my neurologist. From the 1st diagnosis to the followup MRI my tumor grew 20% after medication and radiation.

I continued with a 2nd round which was why it was important to to have the last MRI that everyone here was so supportive about and unfortunately it didn't work. I have another 12% Tumor growth and it is estimated by my neurologist that continued growth will bring chances of paralysis in my extremities and even start to struggle with breathing.

Looks like i'lll be going through full on chemotherapy and he is going to try and get me in a clinical trial going on in Austin.

I felt that i should keep some of you aware of the situation since some of you guys helped me so much. Im truly grateful for the love and appreciate it. Wish me luck things just went to the next level

Hang in there JOe!

10yrs ago doctors told my mother in law that she had only months left to live because she had a late diagnosis of stage 4 colon cancer and breast cancer. She flat out refused to accept their reality went thru her chemo and radiation with a super strong and positive attitude. Today she is 100% cancer free and going strong as ever. I really believe that her attitude and mindset are partly responsible for her success.

Fight it hard JOe, you've got a lot of laps left to burn!

Thats amazing. Thats amazing that she was diagnosed with 2 forms of cancer late, and I agree with you about the mindset of the person going through it. I am now starting to see cancer and tumor's affecting their lives and i am seeing the ones being positive coming out with better results it seems. Either that or they are just a little more vocal about it.
