Subject: Another Good Scan

Yesterday I was at MD Anderson and had my second MRI while in the trial. The scan again showed the tumor is stable. It also showed some swelling reduction.

Primary brain tumors do not just shrink cleanly like many tumors do when they respond to chemotherapy. .Often they will shrink but leave behind scar tissue. So determining the full extent of the response can be challenging. Ultimately I am continuing to respond.

The doctor is happy so I am too!

April 15th was my eighth anniversary of diagnosis. I celebrated with a ride outside now that spring has come to the north.

Have a great day!
