    Milestones

    Folks, Good news this week for New Year 2017, I had my CT scans for my current treatment with PD1/PDL1 checkpoint inhibitor's immunotherapy for stage 3 Prostate Cancer, no further progression, continued regression of disease, Per Doctor's I'm in the "Control Mode" phase of my treatment, will remain on Keytruda for 8 more months at which time 2 consecutive clean CTscans will deem me in Remission....they are elated with my Therapeutic response thus far...Pray for goods things in 2017... Happy New Year.
