Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was diagnosed in February 2019 with stage 2 bladder cancer. I went through four rounds of two different chemos. I finished in June 2019 when I got healthy again for a bladder removal in July 2019. My path report was totally cancer free one of the best path reports my doctor had ever seen. He told me my cancer was gone and it’s return would be very unlikely but five months later i had a bad ct scan so she sent me for a pet scan and that came back bad too. So she sent me back for a biopsy of the lympth nodes in my chest. That came back that my cancer had returned. So my cancer doctor sent me to Seattle cancer care alliance in Seattle Washington. That’s where I saw a doctor that told me I now had stage 4 bladder cancer and I had a year and a half to two years to live. He then told me about a drug trail I could start with immunotherapy and they are seeing good things with the trai. But there was a fifty fifty chance of me getting in to the trail. So I took my chances and tried to get in and I did. I started the treatment and by the time of my second ct scan the cancer has shrunk 60 percent. The drug trail was working and was one of the best things that had happened in my life. Thanks to Lazarex that made it possible for me to be in this trail because otherwise would never be able to afford to do it without there help in my treatment I am so thankful for the people that donate to lazarex to make cancer trail research possible for people that otherwise couldn’t afford to be in one. Cancer is a very scary thing to happen to you but lazarex makes it a little easier then without there help. I am very thankful for all the people that donate to lazarex and make this possible for cancer patients everywhere. Thank you lazarex your one of the best things that has happened to since I found out I had stage 4 cancer.
