      Thank God for Dr. Boasberg at the Angeles Clinic.  I had a response to the Yervoy, I had two 4 dose rounds with 3 ml/kg.  Two tumors have shrunk, and one got bigger, Dr.

      Thank God for Dr. Boasberg at the Angeles Clinic.  I had a response to the Yervoy, I had two 4 dose rounds with 3 ml/kg.  Two tumors have shrunk, and one got bigger, Dr. says it is probably inflamed.  This is my 12 catscan/petscan results.  He says I have chronic Stage IV cancer now not terminal.  That is better!!!  I have had interferon (horrible!,) Biochemo, and TIL (at NIH) with no results until now.  I have had a lot of nausea, exhaustion, coughing, and rash but that is a piece of cake compared to the side effects all the other treatments gave me.  Yay!!
