With the median effectiveness of Zelboraf 8 months and the fact that I've been on it nearly 3 months, it's damn scary to look ahead.
Before the Zelboraf started to work, the disease almost took me. The way I was going and the disease was progressing, I was not going to see the end of this year. I also felt so utterly horrible, it's hard to imagine spending the last days on Earth feeling like that.
This disease is a beotch.
If anyone has read my journal via Caringbridge, you know I've been writing about my fight and what I've been going through to sort of help me deal with it and keep folks updated on what's going on.
