Constant Comment

You must read the eloquent and heartfelt comments on my last post.

Please remember to email me at bkoffmanMD@gmail.com if you want me to respond.

To my friend who is a fellow amputee, having, like me, lost his 11 q arm (chromosome) in the CLL mine fields, and who also has growing nodes, let me suggest that there may be ways to flush out the cancer cells from where the sweet "nurse cells" are keeping them safe from all the poison arrows we can hurdle in their direction.  With AMD 310, or Cytoxan or GM-CSF we may be able evict those no goods that just want to live forever in a nice warm gut node while eating us out of house and home. With coaxing, we might get them out into the blood stream where they must take their medicine like a cell with no resuscitation from their posse. Out in the open, they will be dropping quicker than the value of a share in Madoff's hedge fund.  

I think MDACC has a study using GM-CSF  and R.  I am planning to research it.

I am reminded daily of the wonderful people out there who are willing to share their experiences that have helped me out. I can't imagine what life was like before the connection that the internet allows for each of us to have the connection with others previously not available in such timely manner. Best to you on your travels east to meet with Dr. Rai and others and hope they provide the neccessary help. My road has changed because of my meeting with Dr. Rai and his staff(with help from your recommendation) and I hope the road is long.
