Clarification on the chemo and radiation

A quick clarification on Tom’s treatments-The chemo is a pill he will take an hour before the radiation. He will take that pill 7 days a week for 6 weeks for this round. 

The radiation is a short visit to the Beaverton campus 5 days a week for 6 weeks where they will target a small area of his brain for 10-15 min with the radiation. He’ll have to get labs done there once a week and we will meet with Dr. Jaboin every Monday after it starts. While we appreciate the offers to sit with him through the treatments, they don’t allow anyone in that radiation room for safety reasons. Thanks everyone for your continued offers of support. We are so lucky to have all of you!
