We walk because of people like David
David walked with Foundation Beyond Belief’s Light The Night team last year right after finishing up chemotherapy treatments. However, he discovered in February of this year that his leukemia had come back.
He participated in a clinical trial in Philadelphia that involved genetically modifying his T-cells with viruses to cause them to attack cancer cells and then being infused with the modified cells. A few weeks later, he was declared cancer free!
From David’s walk page: “This entire experience has been made significantly easier by family, friends, and all the doctors, nurses, CNAs, hospital staff, and everyone else you meet along the way. Thank you to everyone.” If not for clinical trials and cutting edge treatments like those funded by LLS, David might not be cancer-free today.
