Still Looking For The Perfect Genes

Got a letter from the Cancer Factory yesterday – my tumors are not genetically eligible for the EGRF or HER2 receptor studies now underway at that esteemed institution. So I keep on with the Avastin and Cytoxan and see what other groovy trials are available next month.

Kinda feel left out, though, you know? Like a rejection letter from my first-choice college. Damn, now I have to go peel the sticker off my car window.

    Well, shit. I feel odd wishing someone was HER2 positive, but I guess in this case….

    I’m hoping that the new trials coming down the pike are a perfect match for you. Just think, you’ll be graduating with honors soon from a better fit and be able to give the old chin-flick-fuck-you to that lousy study.

    I’m SOOOOOO grateful I’m HER2+. It’s a miracle drug for breast cancer HER2 breast cancer patients and it seems to be working her HER2 stomach cancer patients too. But, I’m sure something will come down the road for you. I’m ready for you to be NED for years.
