                  So treatment starts 8/16/17. Next wed.   (Stage IVa SCC HPV+)  treatment was delayed because RO changed her plan.. my tumor has aggressivly grown.  My RO couldnt believe it. My ENT had to call her and say he needs treatment now!! All drs are on same page now and my next journey is here..  42 rads/7chemo.. trying to be ready for this
