Cancer! The diagnosis that no one wants to hear but the one that is increasingly more common. Like the disease itself, the fight against cancer is personal and everyone who gets that diagnosis has to choose their battles, muster all of their resources (physical, mental, financial, social, etc.) to fight through the war. Fortunately techniques identified by 2018 Nobel Prize winning scientist James Allison and team are changing the outcomes by helping our bodies use our own immune systems to fight against cancer cells. Join us to learn about the drivers that led to the discovery, how this technology is extending lives today, and where it can go tomorrow.
