Friends of Jimmy,
We wanted to provide you with an update on how things are going with Jimmy. While Jimmy continues to look and act normal, the fact is that the chemo treatments are incredibly challenging, both physically and mentally.
He is very good at concealing how much of a toll the entire experience has taken on him. So while he may seem like the “regular” cheerful Jimmy, just know that he is working through this struggle on a daily basis.
Having said that, the chemo regimen has been successful - Jimmy just finished up his last round of chemo earlier this month.
Jimmy will be moving onto the next phase of treatment which entails having surgery on October 26 to reverse his ostomy, removing the remaining cancer cells in his colon, and implanting a hepatic artery infusion (HAI) pump. The HAI pump is inserted into the abdominal wall and delivers chemotherapy through the hepatic artery to the liver.
Hopefully, if things progress as anticipated, Jimmy can get a liver resection performed in about six months.
All of this is good news, and while the journey will be difficult, we all know that Jimmy is a fighter. Unfortunately, not all of the developments are positive. Jimmy is about to "age out"/ "fall off" of his parents’ insurance, so we are asking for another push to help prepare for the oncoming wave of expenses.
