June 23 – Brandon – 1/Cancer – 0

Finally! We got some good news. We posted earlier that Dr. Al-Kasspooles (oncology surgeon) was going to take Brandon’s case before the tumor board (of experts) today. That happened, and the board recommended continued monitoring but no systemic chemo at this point. They reviewed his medical records and agreed that the surgeon had removed all of the cancer, so Brandon is currently cancer-free. They will do follow-up scans every 90 days to see if any evidence of disease returns. They will monitor every 3 months for several years. If he remains clear, they will monitor yearly. The war is not over, but this battle is!

Brandon was feeling better this afternoon after hearing the news from his doctor. He went out to dinner with Kristen and the girls for the first time since before his surgery.

So now we are still just fighting the kidney issues. Please keep praying that his lab results show improvement when we go in on Monday. If he can get his dialysis catheter removed, he can rest until his next scan in September. We can’t imagine that he would come so far in his fight against cancer, only to be overcome by the kidney issues.
