In Sy We Trust

December 6, 2011: every time you feel weak, not in the mood, or giving up hope, I want you to think of Sy. Through 11 rounds of chemo, an oral chemo drug every day, no hair, time away from his friends, constant trips to the hospital he has not stopped fighting. Yesterday Sy had scans done and for the 1st time in 8 months he decided he wanted to be awake for the scan. He was a trooper and continue to stare cancer in the face and tell it he is not scared. They returned the hospital today to meet with doctors and go over the scans. Mind you, he has been off chemo now for almost 2 months. Not sure what to expect we prayed harder and tried to think positively. Well let me tell you, Sy is stronger than any of us will ever be! Sy continues to beat the odds. Tumors in his lungs and liver have shrunk in size and number! Doctors have decided for Sy to continue his oral chemo drug with obvious follow up appointments. And thanks to the San Jose mercury newspaper article we have had amazing out reach and inquiries of ways to help and is looking into a clinical study. So fingers crossed the current treatment continues to work and the clinical trial works and can not only save Sy's life but others with liver cancer.Thank you for all of the support, prayers and faith. Don't stop believing!
