6/21/18 first infusion of Nivolumab, an antibody that is being tested to see if it will help Josephine’s immune system to work against tumor cells. This drug is approved for use in adults but not for brain tumors. We were worried about side effects but it’s too early to know if she will have any yet. We're told it takes a couple of weeks to know if she will have any. Josephine was fine this morning and walked to her last day of school this year as usual. Tomorrow we are heading to Malta in a family trip sponsored by “Make a Wish Foundation“ as she has always been curious about Malta!
We will keep everyone posted about her progress, but our plan continues to gear toward Monterrey, the only place that can offer us the combination of chemo and immunotherapy together....
Thanks so much for caring and for your support. Don’t forget to share. Thanks
