  • Her acute lymphoblastic leukemia is getting worse, we tried all the treatment that we can and all of it failed.
  • Doc. is there a possibility for my daughter's disease to be cured?
  • There's only one way left I know, it is an experimental gene therapy called Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell therapy.
  • But doc, I don't want to give up on my daughter. Please do anything for her to survive.
  • CAR -T is a way to get immune cells called T cells to fight cancer by changing them in the lab so they can find and destroy cancer cells. But the cure rates are only 25 per cent.
  • Could you explain further, doc?
  • CAR T-cell therapy is a type of cellular therapy that mobilizes a patient's own immune cells to fight cancer. They're created by taking a specific group of cells from a patient's blood, altering them in the lab to boost the immune system's natural reaction against cancer, and then reinjecting them back into the patient.
  • Yes, that's normal. It's because she has large amounts of chemicals called cytokines into her blood but she will be better in few months.
  • Doc, is it normal for her to vomit and get a high fever?
  • Thank you, doc!
  • I'm glad that you are blessed to survived! Because it's so rare for your age to survive that.
  • Thank you, doc! for not giving up with me on my daughter.
