Immunotherapy is a treatment that uses part of your own immune system to fight diseases such as cancer. Hear from LLS funded researcher, Dr. Helen Heslop, as she provides an overview of the cutting edge treatment known as CAR (Chimeric Antigen Receptor) T-cell therapy. Additionally, participants will hear about support resources available locally and through their cancer center as well as nationally through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. After participating in this program, we hope patients will feel more prepared to discuss new treatment options with members of their oncology team. 

We encourage you to invite your caregiver and family members.
