From Internet Bad Boy to Immunotherapy Dream Team ~~ Billionaire Sean Parker’s revolutionary project to ‘solve’ cancer
What a great story tonight on 60 Minutes about Sean Parkers Journey to Solve Cancer with Immunotherapy with $250 Million and His Power of 6 Dream Team
MSK Is Named Founding Member of Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy
Serial tech entrepreneur Sean Parker first made a name for himself in the early 2000s as the brains behind Napster and Facebook. In recent years, Mr. Parker has turned his entrepreneurial zeal — and the considerable wealth he has accumulated as a result — to addressing pressing matters of public health.
Today, the Parker Foundation, of which Mr. Parker is the founder and president, announced the creation of a new venture — the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy (PICI), a network of scientists and research centers geared toward unlocking the power of the immune system to fight cancer. The new institute is enabled by a $250 million grant from the Parker Foundation.

Another Great Story About Immunotherapy Treatment for Cancer. which I posted about in January Click here for that article.
If you missed the Parade magazine article on Sunday, this was a great article about Lori Alf and her success with this Therapy. This therapy is saving many lives for those not having to go thru Chemotherapy. Immunotherapy involves the use of a person’s own immune system to treat an infection or disease.
There are links in the article that direct you to Where you can Find Potential Trials and 5 questions to ask before joining a trial. What is most important to know is that most physicians do not know about the immunotherapy treatment or trials so you must tell them about it and even if they do know about it may not tell you - ask them how you can be a part of those trials. As Lori states in the article had she not researched her cancer and what is available as treatment, she would not have known either. But she did and that knowledge saved her life.”
Seven years ago I did not have this option so this is very promising for many.
I hope this will help anyone out there who is going thru their cancer journey.
A Mouse that Roared: Lori Alf's Fight Against Cancer and the Miracle Cure that Saved Her
MAY 6, 2016 – 5:00 AM By FRANK LALLI
Carl H. June, M.D., who spends his days in a sterile research laboratory, had never met the woman who crossed the room and hugged him at a conference in New York City last fall. But she had a good reason. Just one year earlier June had saved her from a blood cancer that might have killed her within weeks.

I am very blessed that I got rid of my cancer since the doctors told me I would not live. They just don't know me very well I guess. That was many years ago and I am still cancer free. I continually look for new things that help me do that. The past few months I have friends who have lost their loved ones to cancer and it is devastating to them and their families and friends. I also have good friends that are dealing with the after effects of Chemotherapy. I also talk to alot of people who ask for my help as to what I did to get rid of my cancer and how I keep it away. I have helped many I believe so that is a blessing to me.
I talked to a girl yesterday who has cancer, no insurance, doesn't even know what kind she has because she can't afford to go to the doctor, has two little girls, but has been doing many of the same things I did posted on this blog. She has been on Colonel Joe's diet, and Raspex powders which I take daily and other things. I have not been able to get her out of my mind since we talked. I was lucky to have insurance and Rena Davis, Holistic Specialist who helped me - but to be in her situation I just can not comprehend what she must be going thru.
I was working early this morning and a news show came on about New Cancer Research that could replace Chemotherapy Treatment. It is called IMMUNOTHERAPY - the Doctor on the show talked about the successes they are having with this treatment and how it is saving lives from those not having to go thru Chemotherapy. Immunotherapy involves the use of a person’s own immune system to treat an infection or disease.
So I started researching this - and my links are below for those that want to read about it. If you have know someone who has cancer please forward to them. There are Clinical Trials that they need people to be a part of as listed at the end of this article with a link to find Clinical Trials in your area. This is very exciting news.

Not all cancers have been approved yet but there are Clinical Trials you can be a part of and I have put the links below to the info.
If you know someone who has cancer please forward to them - It may save their life.
About Clinical Trials
Cancer immunotherapy clinical trials are critical to bringing new and potentially lifesaving treatments to more patients with more types of cancer, and may represent the greatest hope for patients currently facing the disease. Many patients, however, are not aware of opportunities to participate in clinical trials and may find it difficult to identify trials that may be appropriate for them. This section is designed to educate patients about the basics of clinical trials, why clinical trials are so critical to our work, and things to consider about enrolling, as well as to assist patients in finding clinical trials for which they may be eligible.
The doctor was asked about this therapy for those that cancer runs in their family that the vaccines may be available to you in the near future. That is exciting news too.
I will post more about this in the coming days. Have a great Sunday.
