You didn't REALLY think that Genevieve and I would go all the way to San Diego to start this new clinical trial without CELEBRATING, did you???
The night before I started the trial we went over to visit my buddy Craig and his wife Kim. I just learned that Craig is probably the FIRST PERSON IN THE COUNTRY to start on AZD9291. I think I was one of the very last before the trial closed. We are the bookends to what is turning out to be a terrific story!
Craig just learned that his cancer has shrunk so much on AZD9291 in just three months that his oncologist says that his tumors are barely visible! Now we have TWO reasons to celebrate, and TWO reasons for big heaping mounds of hope!
