Watch this video. It's the guy who developed the drug (he's my hero right now). A lot of it is technical, but listen to the things he says that are easy to understand.
Isn't that cool?! He was curing cancers across the board in mice. Not just melanoma.
The first human trial participants were given just one dose (sound familiar?) and it produced three objective responses. One of the ladies is still around to chat 10 years after that dose.
What does this mean? This means I have a chance for a long-term response, guys. A chance! It's the very thing!
This means Death, if he has been hungry for me, is going to have to starve for a while. This drug is giving me time!
This means the world to me, really. I know I'm not out of the woods yet, but I have reached a clearing, and I very well may find myself on the other side someday. We don't really know, "We are in the middle of it."
My boys now pray every night, "We are so grateful for modern medicine." Followed by, "Please bless that all of mom's cancer to go away."
How 'bout it science?
