You may remember me asking for some good thoughts, vibrations and prayers for my nephew, Jack Mintz, in the past year. Jack was discovered to have esophogeal cancer and it was stage 4/inoperable and systemic. His dad had a family condition that was being monitored that becomes a low grade lymphoma in its bad stage and the stress put him into chemo also. So, my poor sister-in -law had her husband and oldest son in chemo at the same time, and we know stress is a killer. Two days ago Jack called with incredible news-after 8 very hard rounds of chemo he went in for a petscan (a previous catscan after 3 rounds showed shrinkage of some tumors and was very promising) and he had received the preliminary results-they showed No metabloic activity, ie no cancerous activity!!! He still needs to get back to see the Sloan Kettering doctors in NYC who set up the protocol (it was administered by an oncologist closer to Jack's home in Princeton, NJ, so he would not have a 2 hour+ trip each time) for the 'final' report (what he got was the preliminary report from his oncologist), but all looks wonderful!! To make things even better, my brother-in-law underwent chemo for a couple of months, but his last 2 checkups, including one yesterday, showed his immune system was back to functioning the way it is supposed to. So he just is back to monitoring his condition, and with less stress, I am hoping he will also stay good.
I want to thank Lana and anyone else instrumental in the prayer circles, especially the one at Wanee. I asked for first Jack and later his whole family be put on the list and thanks to Sue I got to see a video of all the fine people at Wanee who participated. Thanks to Lana and Oteil for running that circle and everyone who added Jack et al to their prayer list/good thoughts and vibration list and/or their Churches' prayer lists.
I also hope and pray that all those who have someone in need get the kind of good news we got. Thank you all again.
Rest in eternal Peace Bill Ector and all that we have lost.

Jack, this is wonderful news. I am so happy to hear this. I haven't checked Little Jack's blog lately. He is such a fine young man with a positive attitude. Truly an inspiration to others.

It is especially nice to hear this good news coming after so much difficult news. It certainly raises my spirits. I needed to hear good news after losing my sister barely a week ago.

Prayers and love to Jack and your entire family.

Thanks Ruthie. I thought you might be still too upset to react to my good news, so I am doubly thankful.

HALLELUJAH!!!!

Thanks for that positive report Jack. It's great to know that cancer doesn't always win. I hope Jack and his pop can keep their afflictions at bay, perhaps even receive complete healing.

YAY!!!

My reaction also, Gordon. His chemo was very intensive but it just started this past February. I kept asking questions because I could not believe it myself. It is wonderful news. His attitude was great thru it all, so anyone fighting cancer, please keep strong and have faith.

This is copied from my nephew's blog:

Thursday, July 10, 2008
Are you ready for this?
“COMPLETE METABOLIC RESPONSE”
What does that mean you ask? It means that the preliminary results from the PET scan this morning show that the cancer is GONE!!!!

Yes! You read that correctly, GONE.
It’s all very fresh and we’re still shaking and crying but it’s true.

The plan is that we will have a discussion with Dr. Richards and doctors at Sloan-Kettering on Monday to determine next steps.

I’m not sure at this point what else to say. Although I guess a big thank-you goes out to all of you for the prayers, support, cards/letters, phone calls, text messages, food, gifts, donations to LAF, and generally good karma that came our way over these past 7 months. It was a huge help, very humbling at times, and all greatly appreciated.

It’s definitely a bit surreal right now and I look forward to a return to “normalcy” with an appreciation for life from the perspective of a cancer survivor.

LiveSTRONG, enjoy life, and never take the simple pleasures for granted.

Jack has been a supporter of the Lance Armstrong Foundation for a long time before his own problems. He was profiled in LIVESTRONG regarding his team of long distance bicycle riders who do it as a means of fund raising for the foundation. You can see more about his team(Mintz's Mentschen) and the rest of LIVE Strong thru his blog: http://jack-mintz.blogspot.com/
I am sure he is looking forward to being able to ride with his team again.

Lefty,
I read about and posted best wishes in the post about LeeAnn's dad so I know why you didnt have a chance to call. There is no rush, so when you get rested and have a minute, give me a call. I hope her dad has a full, easy recovery.

Great news Jack! Continued healing vibes to all that need them.

My sister worked at Sloan Kettering as a pediatric social worker, for cancer patients and their families for 7 years. A gut wrenching job, as she became so intimate with the families. There were times where she was just a basket case, sharing in the sorrows and then times of joy with all of the successes. It really takes very special people that dedicate their lives to help others.
