Originally diagnosed in July 2016, Michelle’s treatment plan progressed very quickly, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. Her family and coworkers helped support her throughout treatment. Declared cancer-free by the end of December 2016, she considered her next steps to stay cancer-free. In February 2017, she met with Dr. Deirdre Cohen at at NYU Langone’s Perlmutter Cancer Center, who recommended Michelle enroll in a clinical trial of nivolumab (Opdivo®).
Today, Michelle looks forward to new adventures with her husband and daughter and a future immune to cancer.
Provide guidance and encouragement to others going through their journey with cancer immunotherapy treatment.
*Immunotherapy results may vary from patient to patient.
