Hi All,

Elizabeth went off treatment in Sept 2010 and has been doing well.  I've been quiet, trying to give us back some sense of normalcy.  But I'm figuring out that once your kid has had cancer, you can't ever quit it.  The relapse fear is there.  Hopefully, it will fade with time.  Does anybody have a copy of this article they wouldn't mind sharing?  Thank you.  God bless our children.

Children with acute lymphocytic leukemia were examined for evidence of intracranial calcifications withroentgenograms of the skull and computerized tomography. Of 39 children in their initial complete remission, ten were found to have subcortical cerebral calcifications. Significant associations were found between the presence of cerebral calcifications and systemic treatment with large cumulative doses of methotrexate.

I don't have a copy.  However, a web search for the title gave a few web sites you might want to look at to determine if you can simply download it from the internet:
