Kicking Cancer’s Butt … Post-Surgery News

Dawne post-surgeryPicture says it best!

NO CANCER detectable in tissues and lymph nodes taken during surgery!

Dawne is home and doing extremely well. Final pathology will be done by the end of next week. We have every expectation that final pathology will show Dawne is completely clear of all cancer.

Remember our earlier “med-tech” talk? Final pathology is key. We are confidently looking at a “pathologically complete response” [pCR] directly attributed to the antibody drugs in Dawne’s regime. I am so glad Dawne fought the fight to get Perjeta added to her drug infusion protocol. Once added, Dawne’s tumors shrank away to nothing in 3 cycles, leaving the 3 remaining cycles to chase any breakaway cells that would be looking to seed somewhere else in her body.

Happy barely describes our elation this morning – more like euphoric!

Pictures are rumored to be worth 1,000 words. What do you think? Doesn’t Dawne look remarkable coming out of a 4-hour surgery.

I can’t say enough about the support you all have given Dawne.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
