Immunotherapy Offers New Hope for Cancer Patients: One Man’s Alternative Cancer Treatment Journey

On the third day, he received his first injection of the serum, made from his blood and a small section of tumor taken from his biopsy sample. Then he flew home, feeling “absolutely fine, with not one side effect, not even the slight fever they warned me might happen.” Three subsequent visits at one-month intervals followed, and Merrill continued to recover as his skin healed and appetite and energy returned.
