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 Monday, May 10, 2021, and Tony finished his last and fifth round of stereotactic radiation for two more areas in his left lung where the liver cancer has spread.

Last month, he had more CT scans of his chest, abdomen and pelvis. Although, his scans looked good overall, his chemotherapy oncologist advised us that the one left upper-lobe lesion in his lung had gotten bigger and she would confer with his radiology oncologist regarding whether or not he needed more stereotactic radiation.

The radiology oncologist told us there is also the progression of a tiny tumor in a new location that is close to the bone. Initially, he prescribed four more rounds of stereotactic radiation for both areas but a couple of days later changed it to five lower dosages that would not be as toxic. He was very optimistic about the treatment. Tony did really well and has not experienced any side effects. He has a telehealth appointment next month with this oncologist and will have a post radiation scan in three months. He also continues to see his chemotheraphy oncologist monthly.

God continues to care for us and provide us with everything we need thanks to everyone’s prayers and generosity. We could not have made it this far without your love, encouragement and support. Thank you again from the depths of our hearts! We love you all very much!

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!

Love,
The Billings Family πŸ™‚
