    Just Finished Doing a Webinar with Cancer Research Institute

    If you haven't already, check them out! They have lots of resources for people with cancer. They have been involved with immunotherapy since 1953 ... a LONG time for something that is being touted as a new treatment :)

    The other person on the Webinar today was T.J. Sharpe. He has been successfully fighting stage IV melanoma for the last 5-1/2 years with immunotherapy.

      SandiA, go look at CRI's site. They have a lot of Webinars and patient stories there. I THINK I have seen other Webinars with Melanoma patients and I know I have seen survivor stories. T.J.'s experience was interesting to me. He was diagnosed 5-1/2 years ago. He had a 4 week old son at the time. He went straight into using immunotherapy against his stage IV melanoma (it had spread all over). I was surprised immunotherapy was even around ... he got Yervoy with some other drugs if I remember right. Interesting story he has. He also has a blog called Patient1 ... now I forget where he lives. It is published in the newspaper... Sheesh. I just heard his story today and I've already forgotten important details about it.

      @andreacha - great point that I failed to make! Cancer Research Institute doesn't focus on just one kind of cancer. They have information for patients with all kinds of cancer. They have a clinical trial finder, patient stories, Webinars, Summits held across the US, and a variety of other resources available to help those interested in immunotherapies.
