Success with Immunotherapy | Joan’s Story with Stage IV Melanoma
Joan, 45, reached out to CTOAM when she was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma. Her public oncologist told her there was nothing more they could do for her. But she and her husband had been researching on their own and knew better. So they called our cancer experts to help them access the right targeted treatments for her unique genetic mutations. After being one of the first cancer patients in Canada to be treated with immunotherapy, Joan has now been completely cancer-free for several years now!
