Date August 30, 2016 / 1077 reads

Heather from UCSD talks to Rikki Rockett, on the day he was at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health for a scan that would tell him whether or not his experimental immunotherapy had worked — in other words, whether or not his oral cancer was gone. Hear about Rikki’s journey through diagnosis, the recommendation that he have his entire tongue removed, and finally to a clinical trial that is testing a combination of two immunotherapies. Also features Sandip Patel, MD, oncologist at Moores Cancer Center.
