Miracles at Penn Medicine

I completed my CAR T Cell Treatment on October 4th 2016 and five days later I was declared cancer free!  In fact, my tests showed I am in the deepest remission possible.

I was the first adult to turn down a 10/10 bone marrow transplant so I could allow myself to relapse, thus qualifying for the trial. It was a tough battle to get into the trial at Penn due to active CNS involvement for over two years, but I fought hard and in every possible way.  My efforts paid off because I will be giving a speech for The Parker Foundation at UPENN on October 25th, 2016!

I have photos with Carl June, Bruce Levine, and Don Siegle below.  I’m looking forward to speaking at the event!  I will have an update ASAP!
