    Well, I've decided to start IL-2 at U of Iowa on Tuesday(the 11th.)

    On a better note I'm headed to Vegas this weekend with the girls. Short notice, expensive tickets but who cares right?

    Kellie(from Iowa) Stage IV, hopefully NED after IL-2

      May IL2 bring you NED!  Enjoy Vegas and know you are in my thoughts & prayers.  I am sorry the ALT801 trial didn't completely arrest this disease but hopefully it will complement the IL2 and you will be a complete responder.

      Hi Kellie,

      I wish you the best in your dive into IL-2. When will you start the treatment?  Let me know so I can keep you in my prayers (you are anyways but…)

       I am looking to come home to the states to do IL-2 when the tumors decide they can be tougher that the b-raf…  We shall see. 

      Have a blast with your friends in Vegas.  It will be great to get away and have some "girl" time.  I am sure it is much needed. 

      Peace to you,

      Hey there.

      I'm in the same boat as you! I start IL2 at Loyola in Chicago on Monday. We'll have to stay in touch and share our experiences. =)

      I didn't get to Vegas, but did go to a local casino tonight for a little fun. It's good to get some fun in before this craziness starts!
