Barkleyworld continues to support Shady on his cancer journey. February marks the 1-year anniversary since Shady’s diagnosis of cancer in his right anal gland. He’s done wonderfully through all of his treatments, and his quality of life is excellent!

Shady is due for an ultrasound and x-ray to check for any possible metastasis to his lymph nodes or lungs. This is needed to insure his chemo is still the best treatment. If it has metastasized anywhere that means his chemo has failed and should not be continued. His tumor has shrunk and is almost completely gone so we are confidently hopeful that no cancer will be detected! Then the decision to continue chemo or not will be decided.
