Greetings to those who’ve arrived here from my patient profile on The Answer to Cancer!

I’ve been writing this blog with a known audience in mind until now. But once the posts reached a critical mass, I decided I wanted to try to boost this blog’s readership, specifically to include people who, like you or your loved one, may be looking for something beyond clinical information about immunotherapy. Something a little closer to actual, lived experience.

I haven’t been great about tagging the posts by subject (I started to, but my system fell apart pretty quickly) so here’s a rough approximation of what you’ll find when:

Late October: The dawn of the blog. The very beginning of my ipilimumab-induced colitis.

November: The worst of it. Colitis, steroids, and infusions. Finding a way to stay sane during it, finding a way out of it. Also, the end of the road for me with ipi.

Thanksgiving: Things get way better.

December: Processing what happened, anxiously awaiting my next scan in early January, celebrating birthdays and holidays.

January: GOOD NEWS. Immunotherapy works.

Throughout: You’ll encounter posts that have little if anything to do with cancer, links to YouTube that may not interest you at all, and a fairly irreverent attitude. Sorry if those get in the way. I’ve needed to write for a long time, and this blog turns out to have been my point of entry.

Anyhoo, thank you for reading – whether you are new here or have been here from Day 1.
