What a difference a week makes

Kendall received her second dose yesterday of this experimental drug and side effects were minimal thanks to the wonderful care at Piper Cancer Center of Scottsdale Healthcare. Last week was very interesting. About six hours after receiving the drug, Kendall’s heart rate decided to double and we were taken to the ER and admitted to ICU for a couple of nights. By Saturday evening she was feeling OK. She will get another dose next Wednesday and we are planning on coming home for a week after she has her follow up exam. We want everyone to know how thankful we are that TGen is doing research for ACC patients. They are a forward thinking company and that’s what cancer patients need! Thanks again Team Kendall. We appreciate the continued support!

Kendall, Keep Fighting ,Keep Believing! We love you!

    The cancer experimental treatments/meds are truly scary and you are so brave to be trying them. As it was with my daughter, the big hope is that they will bring you closer to a cure – but the secondary factor – that you are helping so many others who will profit somewhere down the road from these experiments – is extremely important to the advancement of a cure for cancer. Bravo for you on all these levels, Kendall. So many, many hearts are following your every move along this rocky road. Thinking of you – as always
