Barely any abnormal cells detected! Joy must continue with chemo for at least two more years to ensure the disease stays away. This next phase of treatment, called consolidation, will require a lot of doses in her spine with a chemo drug that has given her a few side effects already. The road ahead will still be challenging, but for now, we are celebrating this fantastic report!
