“surprisingly the tumor is gone.” The miracles did not end there. When the cancer returned in April, his doctor began salvage chemo. This is essentially a last ditch effort to save a patient. This salvage drug did not work and by July the cancer had spread to his spine, bone marrow and was scattered throughout his body. His doctor said there was a 50% chance that after 3 cycles of chemo the cancer would go away. After only one cycle the cancer was gone. And when the paralysis started Mel was sent home on hospice because they thought it was going to spread into his brain. Yet it didn’t. And we were given 4 more months.
