Questions and Answers

How did you learn about immunotherapy and why did you decide to do it?

I had heard about immunotherapy in the news (Jimmy Carter).

What was treatment like? Did you have any side effects?

No major side effects. Small rashes.

How did immunotherapy compare to other treatments you may have received, if any?

Immunotherapy saved my life.

What would you want another patient to know about immunotherapy or about participating in a clinical trial?

Participating in a clinical trial is worth it. Not only do you have your doctor monitoring your test results, but there is also a team of scientists who are reviewing your progress to see if the treatment is working, or if it is not. You are being monitored by highly knowledgeable physicians, nurses, and scientists. It is a win-win situation.
