      Tricia,

       Your whole family are in my thoughts and prayers. This is not an easy time for any of you. It is so hard to see your loved ones go through some thing like this.

      When does your mom start IL-2? It is important as a patient that you follow your gut instinct especially when choosing which treatment to participate in. I hope and pray that your mom is part of that percentage of which IL-2 works for.

      Thank you Tricia for the thoughts and prayers. It is what is helping my family cope with my husband's passing. I thank God everyday for my little angel. I cannot even imagine what it would be like going through this without her. She is my sole motivation to get out of bed each morning. As you know the presenace of a child brings so much love and joy. She definalty was our light in a dark cancer room. I am sure your children are that for your whole family. Please keep me updated on your mom's progress.

      Take Care
