I never actually made it to see any doctors regarding radiation treatment. There are too many tumours on my liver for radiation to be effective.
Next step is Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto.
I am currently in the process of being enrolled in another trial. This trial is a phase 1 trial and will include an immunotherapy drug and an ATR inhibitor. The nice part of this trial is that, once successfully enrolled, I will be given the actual drugs and not just “standard of care.” There is no randomized selection process in this study.
Leanne and I just completed our second full day trip to Toronto today. I had to visit 3 different hospitals to complete the first batch of the tests and procedures I need to join the study.
We are making the best out of our Toronto trips. We had a little bit of spare time while waiting for my CT scan appointment so we walked over to the Art Gallery of Ontario (and spent the extra $5 on annual passes…we plan to be in Toronto a lot!)
Next is a liver biopsy on June 28. We need to be at the hospital for 7:30 am so that will be fun.
If all goes well it sounds like I will start on this new trial July 5th. For the first cycle (month) I will need to stay overnight at Princess Margaret a few times so they can monitor me.
Please pray that, if it is God’s will, this trial will extend my life on earth a little longer.
Please pray that I will be able to meet all the study requirements to be enrolled in this trial.
Please pray for Leanne and me as we make frequent trips from Cambridge to Toronto over the coming months.
