Five months ago, 20-year-old Milton was diagnosed with cancer for the third time in his young life. He was given less than a 20% chance of surviving. But today he is expected to live a long, healthy life because of a new T-cell therapy treatment at Seattle Children’s that reprograms T-cells to detect cancer cells and destroy them. Read and share this incredible story of how two determined researchers and the parents of a young boy, who did not make it to his fourth birthday, came together to accelerate pediatric cancer research and saved Milton.
