Marching Along

The trial has begun!  I feel much satisfaction knowing that I’m on a drug that has the potential to work in both body and brain.  Will it work in mine?  Yes!  How long? Forever!

I’m pretty certain my expectations are a tad high.  I’m fine with that.  Isn’t there some kind of saying about shooting for the moon and accepting landing on a star?  That’s what I’m doing.

Go go gadget RO5424802!

    Great to hear! What are side effects like? I hope the drug is easy on you and tough on the cancer.
    Best of luck!

      I’m holding out a week before I make any bold (aka: public) statements about my side effects. I hate eating my own words…or worse, throwing them up. 🙂

    Kim, watching how you do and hope things go well. We are all in this together. In fact, I recently had coffee from someone visiting San Diego from Portland. He is in the same boat as all of us. You may want to hook up (no, not that way :0) with him. Here is his blog:

    Take care.

    Hey Kim – sending out a big shout out to you!! Let’s hear it for Chugai!! From what I’ve heard you will have more energy than you did on Xalkori. I expect great things for you on this. Fingers crossed, mom will start the same trial in a couple of weeks.

      Chugai, Roche, Genetech who ever they are! The whole selling drugs to different companies is so confusing!
      I wish your mom well on this new drug. 🙂
