Dear Editor,

I underwent two-hour treatments with a Cyber Knife on Friday, Monday and Tuesday. While it was not painful, I did get sick once I got home.

I slept 12 to 14 hours after each treatment. It was hard to keep from throwing up. I’m beginning to feel better now.

I won’t know the outcome until a MRI on Dec. 2. The doctor was very positive; he felt good about it.

The Cyber Knife is one of many devices used to fight cancer at Baylor/All Saints in Fort Worth. The war on cancer is one war we are beginning to win.

I have never been treated better than I’ve been treated by the staff at the Baylor Liver Clinic.

Dr. Kevin Jones and his staff, as well as the staff at PPGH, are so special; I can’t say enough good things about them.

With hopes that the tiny tumor on my liver is in-check, I am looking forward to a liver transplant, which could take place in eight to 14 months.

I recently completed extensive pre-transplant testing and screening.

My liver tumor was discovered on March 6. My life hasn’t been the same since; I know it will never be the same.
