It's MRI week! Since our last update we have had several treatments on the new regimen (Avastin/CPT-11). Things have been going pretty well all in all. Hailey did get sick for about 24 hours after the first few treatments earlier on, but we've gone about 3 treatments in a row now where she has not gotten sick at all afterwards. She seems to be handling it better now. No idea if that will continue.
Of course, this is a big week because we have her MRI on Thursday and that will give us an early look as to whether this new treatment is working.
We are also still set to fly out to MD Anderson in late March to see their Proton Radiation center and meet with the doctors to determine if that is a realistic next option for Hailey if this current treatment fails and no other drug option becomes a better choice.
Basically, it's business as usual over here. We're plugging away, continuing treatments, trying to live life.
Mark your calendars for the Team Hailey 5k. It's coming April 16th!

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 - 8:23amDear PLGA Families-
We are in a CRITICAL 48 hours to communicate with the National Cancer Institute regarding the importance of funding PLGA research in their 2011 budget allocation. Please click on the link below and sign the PLGA Foundation’s petition to NCI. Then please forward to your networks and ask them to do the same. This has enormous benefit for children with any type of brain cancer – now the leading cancer killer in children.
Also, if you are on Facebook, please post something with the link and ask your friends to “sign” our petition and re-post. Same for Caring Pages, blogs, etc.

Please help us spread the word!
Friday, November 5, 2010 - 1:31pmWe had our second treatment yesterday on the new regimen. Hailey did pretty well all in all. She was sick last night from it, however, which hasn't happened to her much. After a pretty rough night, she did seem to bounce back to normal this morning and after a delayed start has been back to business as usual so far today.
