More Good News

After speaking with Max's Oncologist, Dr. Roberts, we have learned more about his MRI, bone marrow and bonescan tests. (Max's cancer, neuroblastoma, is a soft tissue tumor in his upper chest/neck area, bone cancer, and bone marrow cancer.)

#1-his bone marrow showed no tumor cells.
#2-the MRI showed a significant decrease in the tumor size.
#3-Max was injected with radioactive isotopes for his bonescan which adhere to cancer cells. The tumor did not "light-up"... nothing stuck to it. Max's doctor and the surgeon determined that the tumor was dead and they would not attempt to remove it or do a biopsy on it (both because they believe it is dead and surgery would still be invasive and would cause delay of the final chemo/stemcell transplant).
