    My Trial Coordinator remeinded me that I'll be hitting a milestone this Saturday with my CT and MRI scans.  It's week #104 since I started Ipi (MDX-010 Compassionate Use) trial back in Aug 2008.   Could use any and all  prayers, good vibes and thoughts on Saturday for continued clear scans.  Will get results on 9/20 after I come back from a vacation.

    Hanging in there and hoping you are all as well –

      Rocco, praying for continued clear scans – forever and ever. Hearing how well you and people like JimB. and Jerry from Cape Cod are doing after ipi, it helps …I'll be starting ipi within a week or so, once my scans come back….Val

      Hey Rocco,

      Good luck on the scans, prayers, vibes and thoughts with you..  It's nice to have someone like you "leading the way."  I heard that there is another Boston patient somewhere around 120 weeks. I hit 84 week from Tuesday.

      I like doing my scans on weekends also,  easier getting in and out of town.

      Hi Rocco,

      I will say an extra prayer for you this evening for good news as you prepare for your scans tomorrow. You have helped me over the years and I appreciate it. I recently started ipilimumab and completed the first 10 week cycle – my PET scan is scheduled for later this month. My hope is that you will have positive results!

      Take care,
