This past month, OncoSec’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Robert Pierce, participated in the 6th Annual Melanoma Research Alliance Scientific Retreat The conference seeks to advance the field of melanoma research, by providing an interactive forum that facilitates data sharing and discussion among key field leaders. This is accomplished through guest participation in a series of collaborative and thought-provoking activities, including panel discussions and notable speaker presentations.
Fighting cancer can be one of the most difficult things a person will ever face. Aside from the detriments caused by the disease, many available treatments leave patients drained and in pain. Keeping a positive, determined attitude can make a huge difference, in a patient or survivor’s ability to push forward and stay motivated. We’ve had the pleasure of meeting many cancer survivors who pushed through their illness: individuals who looked at their experience and wanted to use it to help others. These three advocates have all survived cancer and created non-profit organizations, in order to help educate, inspire, or treat cancer patients, as well as raising awareness around cancer risk factors and prevention.
