Wheels are in motion 11 July 2020
To mark the end of Richards first week of radiation we have some exciting news to share.
A specialized senior oncologist from Australia has agreed to review Richards case and offer any possible alternative treatment suggestions. This oncologist has recently been working with hypermutated tumors and immunotherapy treatment, so it will be interesting to see if this will be an option we can consider.
Adding onto this, the DIPG Centre of Expertise within the Children's Hospital of the University of Zurich has also agreed to review Richards case to see if he meets criteria for their current ongoing clinical trial (or their two upcoming clinical trials).
So we have a bit of a waiting game to play while we request all Richards medical documents to send off, as well as wait for these specialists to review, but SOMETHING is happening and that’s better than nothing!
