The Newlyweds

 

On Wednesday, July 10, Elliott met with an oncologist after she had read all of the scans. The results were positive for tumors in two places in the pelvis, a rib, the heads of both femurs, and the lungs. It is confirmed that the Osteosarcoma is back and has spread via the blood stream.

There are numerous questions that have subsequently come up and many decisions yet to be made. We will try to inform as much as possible what is most likely going to occur at this point. Elliott will be starting a blog soon as well which he will link to Facebook and other media outlets to try and keep everyone in the loop, so be on the lookout for that if you want to follow him on this journey. For now, this is what will be happening:

1. Elliott will shortly be dropping out of Michigan State University and leaving the East Lansing area permanently. He will not be obtaining a degree.

2. He will be starting chemotherapy in the next couple weeks depending on new wedding arrangements in the works.

3. This chemotherapy will be in three-week increments: five days straight for 8-10 hours per day followed by two weeks of rest and recovery. The first “session” will likely be eight cycles.

4. Because the cancer has returned, there is likely a mutation that has grown resistant to the previous chemotherapy. This new type of chemotherapy will be focused on controlling the spreading of the cancer; however, it is not extremely effective in killing the cancer, especially permanently.

5. This chemotherapy will be administered indefinitely. Likelihood of ever removing all of the cancer is extraordinarily unlikely.

We understand that this is a lot of information to take in. For now, he asks for prayers for healing, patience, wisdom, peace and many other things that he vehemently believes only God can bring.

As of late, Christina and Elliott are feeling exceptionally loved by friends’ and families’ generosity, sacrifice and affection, and wholeheartedly wish to thank everyone for their contributions. What a great community.

Obviously, there is much more to say and will continue to be more to say as life continues. However, he wanted to take the time to let everyone know this information. If you have any questions, comments or anything, please feel free to call, text, email, etc.
