Before & After
The girl with the sunshine hair has found a new do for her journey. I thought you all would appreciate seeing her shining face.
We do have news from a yesterday's appointment with the GI Oncologist at UCSF - Dr. Ko...
It looks as though Folfirinox is the cocktail of choice! And, according to Dr. Ko, there is absolutely no reason why mom cannot receive this treatment through Kaiser. There is a beautiful facility in Santa Clara where a colleague and fellow Standford Univ. alum, Dr. Pan, currently works.
Here's the glitch... Kaiser insists that mom is a new patient and therefore in need of yet another hour long appointment to review her treatment options. The first available appointment isn't until 2/22. Clearly, we're not going to wait that long for her treatment. So, we're currently trying to arrange for her to receive the Folfirinox asap - hopefully Monday 2/13.
Please send your positive thoughts toward our efforts to expedite this process. We're so ready to begin fighting this vicious disease. Mom is already rocking the new do in preparation for her treatment - so we're good to go!
