WARRIOR WAYNE IS 63 years of age (2012)
OCT. 1999: 1.45 mm Melanoma behind right ear lobe – Removed ear lobe and did SNB @ MDA Houston, TX – there was no node involvement. Watched him every 3 months at MDA for 8 years, then turned over to our Doc here to do the screenings.
March 13, 2012 – NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – diagnosed with Melanoma mets to both Lungs, Liver, Sternum, L-5 spine. (found it through a calcium scan for heart disease) Showed shadow on left lung through the scan. GOD IS GOOD to have shown it to us. Wow – what divine intervention.
APRIL 23, 2012 : RACED TO MDA ASAP !
JUNE 2012 : After only 7 weeks of Zelboraf ALL tumors were completely gone. They call him a COMPLETE RESPONDER ! YES !!! 🙂
DEC. 2012: All PETS have continued to be clean except one strange, and very rare tumor on his right leg, which is NOT Melanoma, and not Cancerous. Will leave it alone.
