3rd Scans: Greater news than we had even hoped

Dad helps AJ wake up from his third MRI since finishing proton therapy.

Dad helps AJ wake up from his third MRI check-up since he finished proton therapy.

Today was AJ’s third MRI scan since completing his proton therapy and the news was even greater than we hoped. After his second scan, we celebrated stability – where the tumor has remained the same size as before. (Remember, for many chronic cancers, stable disease is something to celebrate.)

Well today, AJ’s scans came back even better!

Not only did the tumor not show any signs of growth, but the doctors said that whatever evidence – if any – of it ever being there is gone. His brain is even starting to look like a perfect brain back in the correct position from where it was pushed by the tumor!

The doctors felt things were going so well that we can wait an extra month until his next scan! So, check back in early December, when we hope for another day of Thanksgiving.

We can’t quite say AJ is cancer free yet, but we can say that LIFE IS GREAT and for at least the next three four months, we will celebrate our boy’s miraculous progress! Thank you all for thinking and praying with us.
