      Hi Jill,

      I’m happy you text….I believe Eric has started ipilimumab..am I correct?  I seem to recall he also is like me in that he has many growths on his leg…I have more than 100 on right leg..cutaneous. Have been told I am stage IV due to progression. Very possibly if temodar does not work soon, I will be going on the ipi compassionate trial.  Big question is how is Eric doing on this trial..has there been improvement to date?  Many thanks for any advice you can offer.  Val
