      I am so encouraged by your post.  It is great to hear that some things are helping in this battle.

      That might be one of my moms next choices if the PD-1 does not work.  She is Stage IV and failed the first trial of vaccines.  Now we are on to the second and newer one.  Did they take a tumor off for the BRAF to test it?  She has two large ones that would be easy to get to.  Like 2 inch by 1 3/4 inch.  Are these large?
