    Hi!

    My brother Gary- who has been on GSK – BRAF 2118436 inhibitor at Sara Cannon – was asked by GSK to speak at their  Philiadelphia HQ – on Friday.  It was a worldwide teleconference – speaking regarding his 60% reduction in 9 months.  They gave him a tour- top secret – and all the researchers were so happy to meet a real live person with such success.

    Lots of good things – happening at GSK – he is so happy!

    Best of luck to all.

      How great for your brother!  I worked for GSK for almost 30 years and am happy that they have come up with this drug that hopefully will help many.
