Yesterday was infusion number 26. One full year of receiving that Anti PD-L1 autoimmune therapy known as MEDI4736. As my venerable oncologist Dr. Michael Pishvaian said, “we’ve entered uncharted territory.” In other words, “we don’t know what we don’t know.”

I am so thankful that I have a God that does know. While I could sit here wringing my hands with all the uncertainties I instead find solace knowing that He has gotten me this far.

For those of you who have stood by my wife Robin and I during the past 15 months, we could not have made it without you. Your heartfelt prayers, concerns and shoulders when we needed to cry have made the journey so much easier to travel. Thank you all.

Psalm 73:26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.

    I am so thankful for your good news, for you and Robin, for sharing your journey with all of us. In this world of uncertainty, pain, and chaos, your 12 words, “I am so thankful that I have a God that does know” mean so very much.

      Dear Mike and Robin, I am so grateful for the “everlasting arms” that carried you through this ordeal. Your good news is amazing. “Uncharted territory” makes me think that the doctors are standing in amazement as well. You have been an inspiration to them and to us Mike as you have shared so openly about your experiences this last year. What a trooper you have been as you have trusted God, the One and Only. It gives us encouragement as we run the race with Chip and Brenda. Thanks for your prayers on her behalf. Her chemo started on Monday. Love in Him, Joyce
