RESEARCHERS ARE HAILING A POTENTIAL BREAKTHROUGH WHEN IT COMES TO TREATING CANCER .. AND THIS NEW WEAPON COMES FROM A SURPRISING PLACE — INSIDE THE PATIENT’S BODY. THE TREATMENT IS BASED ON TWO DRUGS… THAT JUMPSTART THE BODY’S IMMUNE SYSTEM TO FIGHT CANCER CELLS. IT STOPPED THE DEVELOPMENT OF SKIN CANCER IN 58 PERCENT OF THE CASES. THIS CANCER RESEARCH SUCCESS STORY IS PROVING TO BE A LIFE-SAVER FOR A NORTH DAKOTA MOM WHO JUST TOOK PART IN AN IMMUNOTHERAPY CLINICAL TRIAL AT A HOSPITAL IN TEXAS. WE HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING ASHLEY SEYKORA’S STORY SINCE JANUARY. THE MOTHER OF TWO MOVED TO TEXAS TO TAKE PART IN THE TRIAL AFTER SHE WAS GIVEN A STAGE FOUR MELANOMA DIAGNOSIS. SHE MADE IT THROUGH THREE FOURTHS OF THE TRIAL BEFORE HER BODY COULD NOT HANDLE IT ANYMORE. NOW– A SCAN OF HER BODY AFTER THE TRIAL SHOWS ALL TUMORS WERE GONE, THERE WERE NO NEW MOLES AND HER LIVER LESIONS HAD SHRUNK 80 TO 90 PERCENT. ASHLEY IS NOW BACK IN NORTH DAKOTA AND IS STILL ON IMMUNOTHERAPY DRUGS TO FIGHT THE MELANOMA.
