Doctors say they can’t find any remaining trace of cancer
| FOX59, Cleveland – Denise Keenan, 66, of Youngstown, Ohio, was diagnosed with non Hodgkin’s lymphoma back in 2009.
Denise says she had “started getting used to the idea of not being here anymore.” She went in and out of remission several times over the past ten years, with a variety of failed cancer treatments.
PET scans had confirmed that cancer was spreading throughout her lungs and chest.
But this August, she had a major breakthrough thanks to a therapy being studied in clinical trials.
Just 30 days after Denise became the first CAR T-cell patient at Seidman Cancer Center at University Hospitals, doctors say they can’t find any trace of cancer.
The trial is delivered in a single syringe and re-engineers T-cells to seek out and destroy the cancer cells. These Hospitals Do Breast Cancer Screenings Wrong
