Thank God for Unanswered Prayers...

When the cancer spread to Eric's brain we were so devastated.  It was days before he was to begin a new promising treatment.  We prayed for Eric to get into this treatment and now he would no longer be able to participate until 2 months after the brain tumor was removed and he had radiation.  It was the longest two months...but God had a plan.

Just two weeks ago, Eric began a new clinical trial in Nashville, TN that consists of BRAF and a MEK inhibitor.  These are the changes we are seeing in just two weeks!

Eric and I are so thrilled and filled  with hope that we wanted to share these amazing changes with you!  Thank you for praying for us.  We are truly blessed!
