Please Help Prolong Tony’s Life!

On February 19, 2018, less than two months after his father passed, my husband Tony received a call that we never expected and that would change his and our family’s lives forever. It was his doctor calling to tell him he had liver cancer! In addition to treatment, he was also in need of a liver transplant.

Today is Wednesday, January 6, 2021. Tony started taking his chemo pills a little over three months ago. He has experienced several side effects, but they are not as severe as they were initially. He has been following-up with his oncologist.

Yesterday, he had CT scans done of his chest, abdomen and pelvis. Today, he saw his oncologist and received his CT results. Wonderful news!!! His scans look good! The nodules are decreasing in size! There are still two that the oncologist has reached out to his other oncologist about to see if more radiation is needed. He is to continue taking his chemo pills. Today’s labs also were fine! His next follow-up is in four weeks. He will have more scans in three months.

As always, thank you all so very much for your ongoing prayers, love, support and encouragement!

A lot has happened since my last update. Sadly, Tony’s chest CT from earlier this month showed that his four radiation treatments from May and June, 2020 did not work like they should have. Initially, he had one cancerous nodule in his left lung. The cancer is spreading, and there are now multiple nodules. They are still small, but there are quite a few of them.

He will be given systemic therapy (chemotherapy pills) to slow down the growth of the new nodules. Data shows the pills will not cure the cancer or make it go away forever. The goal is to get it stabilized so it does not get worse.

The cancer is stage 4 because that is the stage given for any cancer that spreads from one organ to another. It could get worse. Not many patients get shrinkage so it is better to not get any new cancerous nodules.

He will have CTs done of his chest, abdomen and pelvis the first part of October and a follow-up appointment with his oncologist later that month.

Again, thank you all so very much for your ongoing prayers, love, support and encouragement!
