      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 –

              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,
