Clinical Trial Associated with Skin Cancer - Melanoma. Posted on December 7, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

I was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer December, 2011. I decided it was best for me to leave the small practice of oncologists that I have been seeing and o to Penn Medicine. It was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I immediately responded to the drugs and less than a year later I am very, very close to being cancer free. This drug combination (also known as immunotherapy) has been a life changer for me, well actually, it gave me life. My cancer was spreading very quickly and it is doubtful I would be here writing this today if it had not been for this treatment. I can't say enough about the doctors at Penn Medicine - they are fabulous! They are on the cutting edge with treating melanoma. This particular clinical trial gives you a 60-80% chance of going in remission. I will gladly share any information - just send me a note.
