First, I want to say how nice to hear from you again! (I think the last time was on your birthday?)
All I know about Ixempra is that "it has been found to cause a significant percentage of breast tumors to shrink or stop growing, even in some women who already have had several types of chemotherapy." I hope it buys you some additional time!
It has helped a friend of mine who was thinking it was a "last ditch" chemo. She just got back from a cruise! She's doing MUCH better!
Best wishes to you :)
