After my last couple of visits with my oncologist we discussed going for a clinical trial. I went on the 16th to talk with a USC doctor about starting one. I feel pretty good but am having some back pain, chest pain, a cough and I don't have much of an appetite. My cancer treatments, up until now, are not working much in my favor. The USC doctor says I'm a good candidate for the clinical trial so I'm going to try to get into the trial.
I am so blessed to have so many praying for me; thank you from the bottom of my heart. Please continue praying for me and clinical trial success. With God all things are possible.
Please pray for Mary Jane Wallace, mother of Jean Smith, who began hospice services at home in Ventura last week. In addition to being a grandma and a great-grandma to 5, she is a sister to Bill Blackstone (a Villanova alum) who, along with his wife Joyce, who are members of our parish. Mary's decline has been very abrupt. Please keep Mary and her family in your prayers.Read more
