CA125 Update

I’m just going to cut to the chase. Doxil is not working. Mom’s CA125 is now 4,298 from 2,530 last month. Her doctor is taking her off this chemotherapy treatment because it’s not doing anything and the cancer has continued to grow while she was on it.

We are incredibly limited with the types of treatment mom can be on due to the fact that she is platinum resistant, PARP resistant and the location of her cancer. We will meet with her oncologist Monday but as of now the plan is to start Alimta which is a chemotherapy drug used primarily in lung cancer patients but has been shown to work a bit in a small number of ovarian cancer patients.

Here’s the thing. I’ve been trying to close out this blog for about 30 minutes and I don’t know what to say. So I’ll just finish with this.

Mom, I am so incredibly proud to be your daughter and I love you 💜

    I love the quote you started with as it epitomizes not just your mom (who is AMAZING), but all of you. You have all been in my prayers and will continue to be in my prayers.
    Much love,
    Brenda
