Dear Dr. Chen:
Thank you so much for helping me through my weekly chemotherapy. Your treatment is keeping my white blood count up to enable me to continue with the chemotherapy.
Four weeks ago, on April 10, 2001, after the fourth chemotherapy cycle, my white blood cell dropped to 2.5, far below the normal range of 3.4 to 10. And the NEUTs have gone down to only 1.52, also below normal range of 1.8 to 6.8. I was told that unless the count improves, I cannot continue with my chemotherapy. I came to you then for acupuncture treatment on April 14, 2001. I am very pleased to see my blood picture has had a dramatic improvement only after 10 days of care. The blood test on April 24, 2001 has shown that my white count was back to normal! The total WBC count was increased to 4.6 and the NEUTs count went up to 3.44, all reached the midrange of normal values. I have attached copies of my blood test results for your review.
It is amazing how well I am handling this chemotherapy in my battle against stage IV cancer. I really appreciate your help.
