Dance Family:  
Consult update on Mary E Justice.  She begins treatment next Friday. She will be on the drug Keytruda. Her infusion therapy will be once a week, every 3 weeks for a total of 4 treatments. We will then get a new PETSCAN. Her MRI f/u is scheduled for June to see the outcome of the Gamma Knife treatment. It is believed that all cancer areas are Lung cancer that has spread, so at least we are targeting only one specific type. No need for Chemo at this time. She will be closely monitored to make sure the immunotherapy drug is getting desired results.
