Check out the story of this little fellow and his family - dealing with a slow-growing ganglioglioma to the brain - respond to BRAF/MEK targeted therapy:  

Ratties will save the world!  Thanks.  celeste

What an amazing story. Thank you for sharing!!


Stage IV — one brain met (resected via craniotomy 3/1/18 and subsequently treated with SRS) and two lung mets. Started Opdivo 4/16/18. Opdivo not eliminating lung mets, so on 12/5/18 started Ipi/Nivo combo.

Thanks for the share, some day soon all patients will have genetic screening done and many will find a drug not normally used in their cancer. Two programs come to mind in this field, Tapur and NCI match.
