Brad and I went to MD Anderson yesterday to pick up his pathology slides, the path report and the most recent CT scans. We went to hand-deliver them to Dr. Marco (Brad's orthopedic oncologist who has been working on his case since the beginning).
Dr. Marco promised to take Brad's case in front of a panel of doctors at a conference he will be attending in California on Wednesday, March 5th. We are so blessed that this conference fell at the most perfect time. There he will share Brad's case information with Dr. Healez from Sloan-Kettering, several doctors from May's Clinic, and numerous other leading specialists from around the country. In Dr. Marco's opinion, having the opinion of this panel of specialists would be far more beneficial than us, personally traveling all over trying to get an opinion here, another there...etc. Marco insisted that he wouldn't stop until we shared Brad's case with all the doctors in the north/south/east & west. I was so happy and thankful for his efforts in helping our situation....I really could have kissed him on the spot....but, I didn't. I would have hated to embarrass him....he seems fairly shy. :)
So, this is our prayer at the moment.....we are fervently praying that the group of specialists have some new idea or new treatment plan that could possibly help Brad in any way. Thank you all in advance for your prayers. We love you all.
