Thanks Scottsdale

As planned, Kendall had her scheduled CT scans following her 2nd cycle of this investigational drug PLK1. Because this was a Phase 1 study, we knew it was a calculated risk to try something new and unproven. Her scans thankfully showed NO new growth. Her tumors in her abdomen are smaller, but we attribute that to the radiation treatment we received in Roanoke. Her lung tumors remain stable and unchanged. Although it’s not what we had hoped for, we are blessed that her disease is stable. We will continue to aggressively try drugs to help her fight this disease. Kendall is home now and will begin another therapy next week. We would like to thank the Dr’s, nurses, and staff at Scottsdale Healthcare for your exceptional care for our Kenny! We will miss seeing you all. Thanks for making us feel so welcomed!

Special thanks to Tgen, Dr Ramanathan, Dr Demeure, Dr Bussey, Dr Von Hoff, and Troy Richards for all of your efforts. Troy was diagnosed in 1999 with ACC and because of his efforts this rare cancer is being researched with hopes of finding a cure. We are lucky to call you our friend!  We have met some very nice people here during our stay. Thank you all for loving Kendall and praying for her to get well soon.

Thanks for all of the support from Team Kendall during this treatment. We couldn’t have done it without you. God Bless!

Keep Believing Kendall! You Got This!
