Dear co-survivors: Happy news abound. I am the 12th patient in the US to undergo this immunotherapy drug -- and I am finally in remission. My blasts went from 82% to 2% remaining in only one cycle of the drug.
I also have finally found a match - a 9/10 male donor. It's not perfect, but I can't complain! But now we are also looking for matches in the cord blood registry. My doctors and I will decide which route to go.
Wherever you are, please turn up the radio and let's have a global dance party! :)
Thank you everyone for all your hard work. Now it's on me to finish the marathon.
This is such fantastic news. A miracle really. I am over the moon that Janet now has a fighting chance to beat the Leukemia.
