a light at the end of the tunnel (for liposarcomas)

after just one cycle, the tumors SHRANK!
Yes it is true! Yesterday's CT scan showed that they

Shrank
!

oh I am hospitalized in NYC, at MSKCC, because of an opportunistic bacteria, I had to be rushed to the Urgent Care... but that's just a bump on the road.

What is important is that R7112 is working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Many hugs to all of you :)

and to those of you with liposarcomas I leave here hugs full of hope. It looks like, finnally, there is a light (drug) at the end of the tunnel.

I am so happy Elsa, I can feel and see the joy in your face.
My family and I were very happy to hear the news.

I know exactly how you feel right now....the rush of excitement that this study is working and to see the CT Scan with your own eyes and compare with the previous one is amazing to see..... the joy to see the shrunk tumor is overwhelming and I am sure there must of been those tears of joy.

I so very happy for you and your family for your good news.
Your a true warrior.....more positive vibes your way.
