Finding Another Treatment Option for Stage 4 Lung Cancer: K.C.’s Immunotherapy Story


Immunotherapy has given me hope. There are so many other people
out there this can help. Other patients that had
come before me inspired me so that’s my hope to let my experience help the next person. My name’s K.C. Dill —
I live in Conroe, Texas. I’m a wife, a mom, an insurance agent. I was 40 years old, and
I had facial swelling so I went to the emergency room and I was diagnosed with
stage IIIA lung cancer. We had a very fast-paced, busy lifestyle. My husband and I were
both working full-time but on top of that my mom was battling her
own stage IV lung cancer which was the same type and sub-type that I was diagnosed with. That was one of the
hardest things I had to do leave the hospital,
drive to my mom’s house and tell her I had the same thing. My prognosis was very grim. It was a large tumor. My course of treatment
was just standard of care chemotherapy and radiation. It was about 15 weeks of treatment. I had just said, “that’s enough.” We’ve got to find another option because it was literally killing me. When I saw Doctor Zhang after the chemotherapy and the radiation it had progressed to a
lymph node under my left arm so I was then upgraded to stage IV. I did not have the option
of treatment not working because of my family. – At that point, we’d
already had encouraging data about immunotherapy, so
that was the first option that I offered to her. The fact is that she was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer and that is traditionally
considered not curable. When she told me I was going to be treated with immunotherapy I immediately came home and found some other
patient stories like mine. They had been treated with
nivolumab in clinical trials. I thought, wow, if it worked
for them, it could work for me. So at that time, nivolumab
was initially approved but not for her type of cancer then we applied for the compassionate use. Some of the pharmaceuticals
actually set up this program to help those patients which
we clearly have evidence to show that they will
benefit from this treatment. I took treatments of
nivolumab every two weeks. After my first treatment,
I felt a little sore a little flu-like symptoms, but I went to work out the next day after the first couple of treatments I had color back in my skin. My hair was growing, I had more energy and after the first scans,
there were a few little spots but after 16 treatments,
no evidence of disease. We were in remission. That made everyone in the room
including Doctor Zhang cry. You always want to see the best result from your patients, you know? It makes me very happy for her. Her elder daughter is
going to college this year and she’s back to work. Ringing the bell signifies
the end of your treatment. For me, that signaled
my path to a new life. I was on the road to recovery. I was healed. I have been no evidence
of disease for 25 months and off treatment for 19. The Cancer Research
Institute, they’re pushing for immunotherapy to
become standard of care. They have made my treatment
possible through research. I’m just so appreciative.

  • How and why would this uplifting video get thumbs down votes? I am a lung cancer patient too, and whenever another patient has success with a treatment, I am happy for him or her.

  • People should have the option to pick which treatments they want. I don’t know why you have to do chemo and radiation first begore you get to do immunotherapy. Its just not fair.

  • I am so glad that K.C. was cured from her lung cancer with immunotherapy and she is alive and well and no sign of cancer.

  • I was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in 2011, and that year we were excited to be celebrating my six year survivor-ship anniversary – a survival that was not remotely contemplated in 2016. Since i diagnosis i have learnt a lot about lung cancer, the first few years were confronting.

    I had no clue that my LUNG (left) was responsible for these combined symptoms! Fatigue, chest, neck and shoulder pain. My life changed in just one breath when my Doctor diagnosed me with advanced lung cancer that was INOPERABLE, INCURABLE and TERMINAL. I will always remember the pain and tears from my husband’s face as well as my daughters and my close friends. Like many other people this was not the first time that my life was impacted by CANCER. In 2002 my sister was diagnosed with leukemia. Fortunately for us she was diagnosed at an late stage and she pass away. So when my doctor gave the news about me, We all put in mind positive energy to fight against it, Because I was not going to let that put an end to my smile. now i lives a normal healthy and active lifestyle thanks to the “Dr Adebola Herbal Herbs” which my husband doctors prescribed him. SO many good people have lost there life because of greed, The government will preach against herbal herbs because it only one true cure, But will make profit with pills because the money you treat the more money you spent, Thanks to my husband Doctor who told us this. I will want to advice anyone out here going through sorrow with Cancer to reach out to Dr Adebola and I guarantee you that you will be cured. Contact him via: ([email protected])

  • I'm in battle of a stage 2 lung cancer as well. I just finished my chemo therapy sessions.. and I won't do it again.. Surgery is suggested but too risky and another chemo therapy session but won't do it. I want a less painful excruciating suffering than Chemo. Going through chemo is like dying inside.

  • I just started immunotherapy a week ago after doing chemo and radiation. I hope I have the success she has. They tell me I have to take it for a year. Keep in mind I only had up to a year when I was told I had cancer. I think God has more for me to do before I leave this world but it still worries me when I get up and my body just feels like it can't go on. Good luck to all that is going through cancer treatments.

  • I was diagnosed B-cell lymphomas which are types of lymphoma affecting B cells. Lymphomas are blood cancers" in the lymph nodes. They develop more frequently in older adults and in compromised individuals.I remember being on my knees praying, “God, I will fight as hard as I can if you just let me get through this chemo stuff.” When I went in, Dr. Noy said, “I have something that’s going to help. I’m going to give you Procrit after you get your chemo.” Once I got the Procrit, I never felt again like I had after that first chemo treatment. I got tired and I didn’t feel 100 percent, but I was really okay. My cancer became very real to me once I lost my hair. But by then the mystery, the uncertainty, was sort of gone. Not gone, but it just wasn’t at the forefront. There were things that I started looking forward to doing, like going out and not just staying in the house. By then, the weather had started getting really nice, and I decided I needed to get out. I would go for a long walk or take the subway into the city and look in the store windows. It’s funny, people I didn’t know would chat with me on the bus, on the train. We would talk about anything. That made me feel a lot better. It come a day when i was told by a lady to try and do some research on the internet for help maybe there will be a cure to my Cancer.I google for treatment for cancer and I saw some testimony about the herbalist called Dr ODIA and the great work of his Herbal Herbs. With the hope I have in God I believe this to be the end of my problem for I have pray for a solution from God. I contact Dr ODIA with the giving email and also click on his website to see his work. I finally believed in him and told him about my problem. He prepare His Herbal medicine and which I was advice to take for three weeks, There are lot to say about Dr Odia, I Thanks God that this man was used to end my sorrow All my pains and sorrows turn to joy and history from the day I came in contact with Dr ODIA, Who really help with his herbal herbs, I WAS TOLD HE IS A HERBALIST AND HE CAN BE OF HELP, I gave him a try and it really work out for me, today here I'm cured of B-cell lymphomas.

  • My wife was diagnosed of Parkinson’s Disease at age 49. She had severe calf pain, muscle pain, tremors, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, difficulty in getting up from sitting position. She was put on Senemet for 6 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet. During this time span she was also diagnosed with dementia. She started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality. This year, our family doctor started her on Natural Herbal Gardens Parkinson’s Disease Herbal mixture, With the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs we have been able to reverse her symptoms using herbs, which i feel has made the most difference. 1 month into the herbal treatment she improved dramatically. At the end of the full treatment course, the disease is totally under control. No case of dementia, hallucination, weakness, muscle pain or tremors. She turned 56 today. i am glad to get my wife back
