We have the preliminary results from Harrison’s bone marrow test and the doctors do not see any leukemia under the microscope. That is very good news. Of course, in the childhood cancer world, especially Harrison’s world, this isn’t the final test.
Because of Harrison’s unique situation, samples have been sent for more intensive genetic testing that will confirm or contradict any conclusions from the UNC pathologist. So while we are delighted to know that under the microscope there are no confirmed leukemia cells, we cannot be sure that Harrison has avoided a relapse until doctors hear from the genetic tests. This is not unexpected, as we knew that Harrison’s rare case requires additional study. Until we hear those results we are delight in the preliminary findings and pray that the genetic tests confirm no relapse.
Thanks for praying with us.
