Looking for a miracle

This time, it wasn’t easy. Soon after our last update, we found out that the relapse was not local anymore and that he has 5 tumours in his body. This time, the tumour in the jaw was affecting his eating and causing a lot of pain. By the time his tests were done and the doctors decided on a treatment plan, he was already on three different painkillers.

Luckily, the treatment which consisted of chemotherapy in combination with a genetic anti-cancer drug (ALK inhibitor) did work and the pain is gone. Without having time to properly recover, however, he was struck down by an infection that kept him in hospital for ten days. As always, Luca has been a superhero (or a ninja, as he keeps saying referring to his latest passion) throughout everything.

His doctors stopped chemotherapy to try a new drug which he started last Wednesday. We are cautiously hopeful, but prepared to go back to the previous treatment protocol if this one does not work.

Please continue to pray for him or send him thoughts and good energy.
