About a week into treatment, Bill felt a little better. So, he dragged his IV stand to the treadmill outside his hospital room and walked a mile a day.
On August 1st a spinal tap, bone marrow biopsy, and brain scan confirmed the cancer did not spread. Because AML can hide in the brain stem, Bill was given chemo in his spine as a precaution.
Ten days later, he walked four miles. Then five miles.
On August 23rd, Bill became healthy enough to take a break from Roswell- and like a caged animal, he was released back into the wild.
Round two of chemo ended September 14th, and Bill hasn’t skipped a beat- he’s walking/working out, eating healthy, and is determined to beat this disease!
To keep the cancer in remission, Bill will receive chemotherapy every four weeks until his Bone Marrow Transplant.
Note: All donations will be used for expenses relating to Bill’s chemotherapy and Bone Marrow Transplant.
