MRI Update

We are still waiting on the official MRI report. Initial indications are that the tumor is the same size, but there is less perfusion, meaning that the remaining cancer cells are receiving less blood flow. Although it is very disappointing not seeing any decrease in the cancer size, the oncologist says that we can take the less perfusion as a positive sign. As such, we will be continuing with two more cycles of chemotherapy, followed by a final blast of high dose chemotherapy with stem cell rescue.
