As mentioned in my previous post, Derek went through his chemo procedures again over the last three days. Today he got the results of his latest CT scan, and it shows another slight reduction in the size of the colon cancer tumors in his lungs. We are all gratified. It is a slow process, but as he says, it makes the chemo hell worthwhile.

We donate to the BC Cancer Society on a monthly basis. Donations also made by (I hope) many other people look like they are showing some results by way of enabling research into better chemotherapy agents; it's another way to make a difference.

We hope that the improvements will continue.

  1. Such nice news this time. I'm excited for you all. I sure hope things continue in this direction ....just wonderful! I, like you make contributions to the various cancer funds, being a survior myself I know the importance of good treatment and research which is the key to it all.

    Well done and the hell he goes through is paying off, hopefully the hell will be over soon and Derek can resume a normal life.
