Milton Wright shouldn’t even be alive right now. He spent more than half his life fighting leukemia. “I always knew it was a possibility it could come back,” said Wright. “But I was at the near five-year mark where it was not supposed to come back.” But it did return, for the third time. The news got even worse for this aspiring model when he found out he had become resistant to chemo. That’s when he became the second patient to get Dr. Michael Jensen’s experimental treatment. “What we hope to do is provide, in this trial, opportunity for children and young adults who are at that point in their battle with leukemia in which there are no further options,” said Dr. Jensen with Seattle Children's Ben Towne Foundation.
