    Where is Dasmarinas Ciiy, Calabarzon? I think you mad a mistake when you said you were diagnosed 51 years ago. also, your question is not very helpful to those of us who are fighting cancer. Just saying.

    Hi Sarah! Can you believe that summer is almost over? I've been at the beach in RI since memorial day, and it's been really nice. The weather is the best that I can remember. Just to update; my chemo was stopped in April due to persistent shortness of breath. Had a follow up ct scan in June and ned. Will return for another in October. Saw my primary doc who reported that my blood work suggests worsening kidney function, so I'll see a nephrologist in August. I feel great though. Still struggling with the transition to a plant based diet....but we're determined. It's just hard in the summer with all the cookouts and visitors. Anyway, I think of you often. We were in Fall River visiting the Lizzie Borden house (waste of time), and then on to the Wrentham Outlets. Being in MA, I wondered about you and how everything is going. Wishing you well!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy: I've had three rounds of etoposide/Cisplatin. Had an allergic reaction to Cisplatin. Also, kidneys not in great shape, so doc discontinued the Cisplatin (rough on kidneys) and started Carboplatin. Much better, absolutely no side effects after first infusion. Two or three rounds to go. Really looking forward to summer!
