Diane Rehm podcast: Mary Elizabeth Williams: “A Series Of Catastrophes And Miracles”
Six years ago writer Mary Elizabeth Williams received a diagnosis of
malignant melanoma. As the cancer spread through her body, she faced a
grim prognosis. With little to lose, Williams seized the chance to take
part in an early clinical trial for immunotherapy. Unlike chemotherapy
and radiation, which directly target the cancer, immunotherapy helps the
immune system fight the disease. Her treatment completely eliminated
the melanoma in her body. In a new book, Williams offers an intimate
view into this chapter of her life and how she became a breakthrough
case for the revolutionary field of immunotherapy.
