Opdivo has stopped my Gist Tumor Growth and started it to shirk

I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Gist Tumors in an in operable area in Feb 2015. Put me on Gleevec 800 mgs worked for a little over a year. Next Sprycel which we are not sure worked for a couple of months. Instead of the next pill which has only a 10% success rate for a few months my Dr. decided to try me on OPDIVO which has never to our knowledge been used for GIST before. I get an infusion every 2 weeks. After 4 treatments the tumors had stopped growing and after 5 they are starting to shrink. This is a potential major break through. Also don't forget prayer
