The past three days found us up at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. We signed Jacob up for a new Phase II clinical study. He started the pills today.
There is no guarantee that this drug will work on his type of cancer or cure him, but it is more hope than "chemo for comfort". Because there is always room for a miracle or a breakthrough.
We will be traveling to the Mayo Clinic weekly (a three hour drive one way) for check ups and blood work but the majority (hopefully all) of his care will be outpatient. That means more family time and less disruptions.
We are all still absorbing this new turn of events. We feel God's peace and comfort around us and continue to ask you for your prayers for our family on this journey.
