          Hi Nahmi, 

          Thank you for your concern! Very heartwarming. I am doing well (I think). I am just about fully recovered from surgery due to bowel mets. The best news I've had is that my brain is now clear following my most recent craniotomy, and has been for months. I completed Ipi earlier this year, unclear response. I'm just started on the MK-3475 (PD-1) trial so I'm hopeful about that. It's been a rough year, but things are looking up!

          Thanks again for checking in. I really hope things have settled down for you also and things are going as smooth as could be expected.

          Ben.
