      Hey Debbie, this is great news! And your advice is spot on! I’m starting ipi soon, and if that doesn’t work, I have IL-2 on the back burner.  Hope I won’t need it, but if I do, I hope I respond as well as you have. I hear ya on outliving the prognosis. I was given 3 yrs in 2006, and in 2008 I was told I had a 20% chance of still being alive in 2 yrs. Well, 2 yrs is up, and I’m still here! — and with no plans of going anywhere for a long time! :>) And I’ve been stage IV  for over 18 months. Enjoy a long healthy relationship with NED. Ain’t he a great guy?
