Some of you may remember that in December I posted about my mum who has been battling cancer which has come back for a third time 18 months ago and that the stem cell treatment she was hoping to have wasn't an option for her.
Well she had a scan at the beginning of the year and has been to see her specialist yesterday. The scan has come back really well and they are now going to put her on chemo every 3 months for a couple of hours for the next 2 years, mum says this is maintenance treatment!!!!
They will keep the stem cells they did manage to obtain, so if her cancer every becomes untreatable they will try the stem cell treatment as a last option. At the moment, if they went ahead with the stem cell treatment she could be putting her life at risk with the treatment or end up having blood transfusions as she has so few stem cells left.
Mum seems really positive, so if she is happy so am I!!!
