And then there was LIGHT – An update post from Holly

I am delighted to let you all know that I’ve had some Really Good News.

I had a scan last week to check on my progress over the last three months. The results were GREAT. The scan showed much improvement in all of my affected areas – liver, lungs and bones. To say I am happy would be an understatement! I am THRILLED and it’s been a bit of fantastic news which I have been HUGGING ever since.

My husband, parents, brother, in laws and friends are all delighted too. We’re all smiling from ear to ear and thanking each other, thanking God, thanking our lucky stars, thanking whoever we can!

My oncologist wants me to continue with chemotherapy, another 12 weeks, which we will definitely be doing. I will also be continuing all of the other things that I feel have helped over the past few months – a combination of complementary and alternative treatments that feel right for me. We hope that continuing our little ‘formula’ will continue to beat this cancer. I’ll have another scan in April or so.

Thank you everyone, for your support. So many of you have reached out to me with messages of hope and encouragement and I cannot thank you enough. They have all helped me to see the LIGHT. We are making progress! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Now let’s CONTINUE to do this thing!
