Now I just have to temper all the excitement in regards to these results. I haven’t really explained to you how this will cancer will play out – but this is probably what will happen. As the cancer appears to be dying with this treatment I will possibly hit this tumour for touch. However what usually happens with this kind of aggressive cancer is that it returns. We then attack again, probably kill it, then it likely returns, we attack it again, we kill it, it returns and so on and so forth. Eventually the cancer becomes chemo resistant or the chemo becomes too toxic for me. At this point treatments stop.
So for me the central issue is how long it is absent each time – this is the big unknown – but this is my key to more time.
So my mission is to be around so long that you all eventually say “good god woman, you said you were dying, you’re getting really annoying, enough already”. Once you’ve all done this, then my work here is done.
