    I am so ecstatic! Just got off the phone with the trial coordinator. I will be starting the Genentech Braf/MEK trial on Thursday of next week. It has been a crazy three months for me but I feel I am finally on the right path. Thx to everyone on this board for your encouragement and suggestions. I am looking forward to getting started and shrinking that pesky adrenal gland tumor!
