2018 Honored Hero: Steve DeCook’sCancerr Journey
Now that I had 2 failed treatments, the doctors said something surprising, it was good news. Now I could try a new trial drug. I had two treatments and finished up in fall 2012. Then I had a stem cell transplant.
The cancer hasn’t come back since.
The drug that worked for me, brentuximab vedotin, was approved by the FDA this April and was funded by LLS research. They also do tons in terms of patient and caregiver support for people for need it.
I don’t feel like I should be the LLS Honorary Hero this year, but I do like the opportunity to raise funds to make more drugs and more treatments and, ultimately, more cures available to patients.
I’m proud to be part of LLS’s efforts and open up this opportunity for all of you, our E-Konomy family, to join us at our Light The Night team tent on Saturday, October 20, Park Place, 5:30 pm.

Thank you for helping us bring light to the darkness of cancer.
