Okay, here is some good news!

I don't like to have negative things on my blog so I haven't talked about this before, but now that I have some good news I will post it.

My mother has been fighting cancer for about 10 years, in may she was informed that she had yet another cancer. This one is a very nasty type and is very rare. I mean that if you put 2 million people with cancer in a group 1 might have this cancer. The out look is not good when you have this one. The started her on a drug to try to slow it down, the drug is DDT. That's right the insecticide that killed all the bald eagles back in the 60's and 70's. Just doesn't make sense giving poison to kill cancer? And something that can cause cancer to boot! But that is what they did. And guess what, It seems to be working. The tumors have stopped growing and they are so small that they could not stick them with a needle to do test on them!. She has been released for the next year and they are reducing the amount of drugs she has to take. So if there was ever a reason to do a happy dance this is it,And I'm a dancing away!
