Can you believe it has been 6 1/2 years and I continue fighting my Stage IV Renal Cell Carcinoma on my third clinical trial! I am on a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled Phase 2 study comparing CB-839 (glutaminase inhibitor) in combination with Cabozantinib in patients with metastatic renal cell cancer. I am on cycle 13 (1 year) and it is a tough one with extreme fatigue and nausea. I just had scans and there was minimal tumor growth. This trial has reduced my tumor burden by 20% to date. This is a tough clinical trial but hanging in there!
Please support our Jimmy Fund Walk on Sunday, October 4. Due to covid it is a virtual walk but my friends and family plan to safe distance walk on Sunday October 4 at the West Dennis Beach, please join us in person or virtually. I am so grateful for all of your support and to the Dana Farber and all they have done for me. Thanks to all of you our dollars donated go directly to the medical team at Dana Farber, the Genitourinary Cancer Center team at Dana-Farber led by Dr. Toni Choueiri, who are caring for me. Their research and care is making a difference for so many patients.
Thank you for supporting my participation in the Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk. Together, we can conquer cancer!
