Trial Schedule

Hello Friends! We are coming up on our 1 year anniversary with this cancer journey. Wow! In one year we have gone through any and all normal Cholangio treatments. We feel so blessed to have another option.

I want to update you, #TravsArmy, on what our schedule looks like for the upcoming trial.

First, I should tell you that Trav got into the trial that we were hoping for. That was such great news, and quite a relief. The doctors at the NIH also let us know that they are excited about the fact that he also fits the second trial. So… they have a back up if the first trial is not successful. Of course we hope and pray that the first trial will be successful. It’s just always nice to know that there’s something else.

We found out today that Trav is expected at the NIH on the 16th. He will be admitted into the hospital that day and will remain as a patient in their hospital until he has recovered from his surgery. The 16th and 17th will be full of tests and surgery prep appointments. His surgery will take place on the 18th. Today our research nurse told me that it could take 7-10 days for Trav to recover from the surgery well enough to go home. We will be praying for a quick recovery. We will both be so anxious to get home to our kids.

I am not sure when, but some time after the surgery we will find out if Travs tumor cells are re growing into the healthy T-cells that we desperately need. Hopefully they will. It will take about 3 wks for them to fully grow. Once the doctors say the cells are ready then Trav and I will head back to the NIH for the next part of the process.

Kristina (our blog writer) and I will do our best to keep you posted while Trav and I are at the National Institute of a Health. I will ask for specific prayer requests and update on Travs condition.

Again we love #TravsArmy and appreciate the support.

With Love,

    Dear Carrie and Travis: All of us in my Women in the Word Sunday Bible study class at JFBC are praying for Travis and his trip to NIH. I dropped off a welcome basket to Travis last Sunday and he shared his story with me. And, as God would have it, I am also Trey’s choir teacher at church! I already had a special connection to your family through Trey and now I am honored to pray for Travis and your family on this journey. I share this scripture from Micah 7:7 as encouragement: “As for me, I look to the Lord for His help. I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me.” I will pray this prayer everyday inserting Travis’ name and I know God will hear my prayer! I hope to meet you, Carrie. If I can help your family in any way, please let me know. God Bless.

    God is so good. He may not come when you want Him, but He always comes on time. I will continue to pray for you guys daily. I truly believe in the power of prayer and so far God hasn’t failed me yet.

    Travis and Carrie, I know you know that God loves you. And because He loves you, He wants the best for your life—restoration and wholeness. That’s why Jesus Christ willingly laid down His life, died, and rose again. His sacrifice has provided the way for us to find and experience the healing and restoration we need.

    Travis, God has a plan for your life, and He wants to heal you everywhere you hurt. John 10:10 says that Jesus came to give us abundant life, and part of that abundant life is making sure you are healthy and whole—physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally. So I will leave you with this scripture: Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong, courageous, and firm; fear not nor be in terror before them, for it is the Lord, your God Who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.

    Travis, I truly believe that you are going to receive a healing that no doctor(s) can explain. So get ready, because you are next in line for a miracle. I’m just glad that I’m still here to see it happen.
