            Awesome story! Wishing him to remain NED for several more decades! And for all we know, this could be possible. Because with immunotherapy, we still do not know how long the responses last in those who do respond. Again, I hope that we do not find out anytime soon…
              Terrific article! Read it a while back and it gave me a lot of hope and inspiration. Wish we could have survivor dinners. I can just imagine the conversations we would all have! Thank you for sharing.
