“My journey hasn’t been defined by my cancer, but the people who have walked with me through it.”
Jack, a 63-year-old, has been living with mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer affecting the membrane lining of the lungs and abdomen, since 2008. After being treated with chemotherapy and radiation for a year, Jack came to Sarah Cannon Research Institute in Nashville, Tenn., to find a more effective treatment for his cancer. An active golfer and grandfather, Jack is currently on cycle 92 of a clinical trial, which has improved his cancer journey and given him the energy to move to Dallas, Texas, to spend more time with his grandkids.
Jack’s wife, Lisa, has been his rock through this cancer journey - working alongside his clinical research nurse, Dawn, who has been guiding him through his treatment.
