Scans tomorrow

So do not fear, for I am with you
Do not be dismayed, for I am your God
I will strengthen you and help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
Isaiah 41:10

From Madeleine:

Tomorrow I will be having my first CT scan since February.

The purpose of this scan is to see if the clinical trial is working and if it has had any effect on my cancer. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers tomorrow...

"The Lord himself goes before you 
and will be with you:
He will never leave you or forsake you.
Do not be afraid;
Do not be discouraged."
Deuteronomy 38:1

Madeleine with brother Max and friends
Thank you for your prayers for Madeleine. These last 12 weeks since we began this treatment have gone very well for her. She finished up her fourth dose of the anti-PD1 a few weeks ago and has continued to feel great, with very minimal side effects. So, she has been enjoying life and making plans for summer. Based on previous experience, it can take several days for us to hear results back on the scans.

Please keep her (and the whole family) in your prayers as we wait for results. Madeleine has her next infusion appointment down at UCSF in a week.
