In June 2014, I was told that I had about 8 weeks to live and that my only option was an immunotherapy clinical trial.
Through this trial, I became the first
person with Merkel cell carcinoma to
receive avelumab (Bavencio). After
just three treatments, the cancer was
gone, and today I’m doing great. I’m
working and enjoying the simple things
in life with my husband and son, laying
around in the hammock, riding our
bikes, skiing, and generally having fun.
