Angelo, a Very Important Patient (VIP)
In November 2018 Angelo (pictured right with his son) was accepted into a clinical trial at MD Anderson but had to return to Houston once every week and twice every other week. Those trips were rapidly exhausting his savings. Angelo is 69 years old and he and his wife live on their Social Security.
In Angelo's words:
In January 2019 I was informed about Lazarex Cancer Foundation and was fortunate to be accepted. The assistance made my trips (every 21 days) to MD Anderson in Houston, from our home in North Georgia for my chemo immunotherapy infusion possible, and without the stress of figuring out how we can afford the treatments. I am happy to say that my January and March MRI’s have shown that my tumor has not grown.
I want to offer my most sincere gratitude to all of you at the Lazarex Cancer Foundation for what you do for me and other cancer patients. You have no idea how much your assistance means to my wife and me.
