          Thanks for asking. I am so sorry for your loss.
          My husband got mixed results for IL-2, but since the tumor in his throat doubled in size he is not continuing with IL-2. We are traveling for radiation treatments and possibly will start ippi in Jan. It’s strange -Allen has gone through radiation twice before and it is in those areas that the tumors are growing. It is the only option for now to prevent his airway from becoming blocked. B-RAF may be an option once it is available for compassionate use.
