Hello all,

I am raising funds specifically for cancer research programs. More specifically, immunotherapy...


CAR T-Cell And Immunotherapy

HOPE is what I had when I chose to take the alternative to standard treatment for my relapsed/refractory Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. In April 2014, I was devastated after Stanford doctors delivered new of my cancer relapse. The thought of going through another three years of torment, had me running from the hospital.


I was given a chance to participate in a new clinical trial where a protein designed new type of treatment in Immunotherapy - a new immunotherapy, called Inotuzumab. This particular drug uses antibodies that target and kill specific cancer cells. I was given the drug in the hospital where doctors monitored me for several weeks. My cancer was gone and I was able to return home where I would wait for a donor match for a stem cell or bone marrow transplant.

Inotuzumab was initially designed for blood cancers and tumors, and is currently being used in clinical trials for other forms of cancer.

CAR T-Cell

Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T-Cells was first used on a young girl, Emily Whitehead, who had her leukemia relapse multiple times. Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania developed a new targeted immunotherapy (CAR T-Cell), where a patients own t-cells are re-engineered and programed to recognize and attack cancer cells. Emily Whitehead was out of time and options; her body no longer responded to chemotherapy. Doctors took her t-cells to modify, and re-infused them back into her body. Emily became much more ill, getting worse over night. Her parents and doctors feared they would lose her, but when her body began to stabilize, doctors tested her blood, and realized the cancer was gone. Could this be real?

Well, I am here to tell you, it is!! I have made it my mission to bring awareness to others affected by cancer. I am also an advocate and will travel around the world to share my story - if it saves one person!
