latest MRI results November 2010

Post by femme » Wed Dec 01, 2010 7:12 pm

Hi Guys,
Our daughter Nicole has just had her latest MRI with great results once again, no visible sign of tumour, to say we are elated is an understatement, we are just over the moon, I am so positive Nicole will be here next year to celebrate her 40th .
In Jan. 2006 she was given the grim prognosis of a GBM with 3/9 months survival, remain positive as miracles do occur.
Best wishes and a very Merry Christmas to all.

A great result! Thanks for sharing your ongoing good news.

Stephen Jay Gould had a point - that survival lines have a long tail and he, like Nicole, was determined to be part of it.

My personal view includes that view and the fact that chronic cancer is amenable by lifestyle factors. The further along the tail you are the more likely your cancer is to be influenced by lifestyle.

Good news is always welcome - especially around Xmas :).

Nicole latest MRI results for May 2011

Post by femme » Fri Jun 17, 2011 10:06 am

Morning all, I hope this message finds all in good spirit. Our daughter Nicole has had her latest MRI in May and once again showed no visible sign of tumour/cancer. We are totally elated with these results, she has now past the 5.5 years...and again to think they (docs) gave her 3/9 months after being diagnosed with GBM.
Always remain positive and never take what they tell you at face value, we are all unique.

Take care & cheers

p.s. and yeah she will continue to be on that tail.

nicole's nov. mri

Post by femme » Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:17 pm

Hi Romina81, nicole is doing great to date, she has her next MRI in a couple of weeks, her last one was only 3 months ago and they told us there is no visible sign of tumour. We were surprised to hear she needed to come back so soon as we had hoped maybe 12 monthly.....
When ask why so soon the oncologist just stated that is what the boss requested....I hope it has something to do with her long survivol as she has just passed the 6 year mark.
Thank you all for th support shown in all these years.
Take care

I am new to this post, but have read Nicole's success story! I am so happy for her and you femme! My daughters boyfriend was just dx. 1/5/12 w/GBM of spinal cord, inoperable. We are devastated, he is 32. Just started temodar/rt. But, your daughter's story inspirational to say the least. Have the best day!

Nicole's latest MRI

Post by femme » Tue Feb 21, 2012 1:25 pm

Hi all, hope this message finds all/many in good spirits. Nicole had her MRI last week (17th Feb.2012) and again the results were great, no visible sign of tumour. We are just so happy as many of you know she used to go every 6 months and then they changed that to 3 monthly. We now understand why they did that, its all because she has passed the 6 year survival and they just wanted to make sure all was well, great, just wished they would have told us then....anyway stay positive and dont let them tell you anything negative in regard to prognosis, we are all unique and therefore prognosis may also be different, it sure is for Nicole, she was given 3/9 months....6 years on I can still have lunch with my beautiful girl, her son still has his mum and her husband has his wife.
Take care and think positive thoughts.

latest news on Nicole

Post by femme » Sun May 06, 2012 10:47 am

Morning all, just a short update on my beautiful girl Nicole....I am writing this to give others hope. Nicole is doing great and lives a very full life, she was able to watch her son start highschool this year. When she was first diagnosed her son was to start primary school....she always firmly stated she would be there at his wedding and nurse and hug her grandkids...I truly believe this will happen for her.
I hope this little update will give the inspiration needed for many who have been diagnosed been brain tumours/cancers.
It has been 6.5 years for Nicole so Miracles do happen.
Have a wonderful weekend all.
