    We just returned from UCSF where my husband received the results from his first post treatment PET scan.  After 8 weeks of taking the trial drugs, my husband's tumors have shrunk 62%.  We were both stunned and thrilled, as was the doctor.  The tumor in his lung was gone completely.

    For today, life is good.

      That is absolutely wonderful news! I am so happy for you both!

      My husband and I are currently waiting on results of the BRAF testing to see if he will qualify for that trial. It's great to hear encouraging news from this trial. smiley
