from Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun,
“The tumour in my stomach was the size of a grapefruit,” said Henderson, who was at the Toronto Sun’s downtown offices for an appearance on Michael Coren’s Sun News Network show, The Arena.
“My spleen was double the size and the tumours were all over my body including in my armpits and my lymph nodes were swollen.”
Enter an experimental drug, called Ibrutinib, which is now being referred to as “breakthrough” therapy.
“I take two little pills in the morning.”
The tumours began to shrink and now while Henderson can’t say his cancer is in remission, it is as close to that as someone with his form of the disease can ever hope for.
“In my bones, they said they were 87% affected and now it’s down to 5%,” he added. “And the tumour in my stomach that was the size of the grapefruit is all but gone.”
