Hi. It been awhile since my last blog because nothing was happening. Daz is starting a trial for a new drug called vemurafenib plus GDC-0973. He will be starting soon, his health checks and scans start on the 30th of august, then he will start the tablets. Not sure how I feel about this but he is happy to take them in the hope they will shrink the new cancers found on his right lung. They found 2 new nodes on his right lung and something in his lymph node in the center of his chest in a ct scan a couple of weeks ago. I didn't know there was a lymph node in the chest, anyway. I just hope this works. Its scary to hear he has more cancers only a few months after they removed the one in his left lung. Does anyone know anything about this new drug? He is on a health kick that I hope lasts as he is feeling so much better after only a couple of weeks. He is still smoking and I don't understand why he hasn't kept trying to quit but at least he has started exercising and eating well. He is eating plenty of detoxing foods like dark fruit, blueberries, ect.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
