    Remission

    Celebration

    Doctor said i went into partial remission.. I took a trail treatment with follow up care everything 3 mo. for 2 !/2 years! Been 5 months now still there. WBC bounces around but so far so good. I need a PET SCAN, but can't get one. Insurance won't pay.. It would be nice if some one had a thought on where I could go for help? They cost $5,600.00
