Tackling “Incurable” Cancer

When Stephanie Florence was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma at age 34, her doctors told her it was incurable. “I wouldn’t accept that I was incurable,” Stephanie remembers. She began researching her options.

After years of treatments and relapses, she participated in a Fred Hutch immunotherapy clinical trial that completely wiped out her cancer. The clinical trial “gave me a new lease on life,” Stephanie says. “It’s almost like winning the lottery every day.”
