Update on Randy Saso-Shaw and his brain cancer

The swelling has gone down in Randy's brain enough to start tapering him off of his steroids. Just in a weeks time, his wounds have started to heal. As soon as all his wounds are healed, he can start chemotherapy. This may give him another 3-6 months. We were beginning to think they would never heal and his tumor would continue to grow unabated.

Randy is also walking more upright and is using his cane more. His pain level gets less as his wounds heal. We like to see these good days and hope they last as long as possible.

Thank you all for your support. I will keep you updated on how he is doing.

Hi everyone.  Just an update on Randy.  His tumor has shrunk and he's stable at the moment.  He rarely uses his wheelchair and walks with just his cane.  No chemo or radiation while the tumor isn't growing.  He's off of hospice.  We're planning on going fishing this spring.  Thanks for all of your support.  This truly is an amazing site!
