A new, experimental brain cancer treatment is being tested at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. The often terminal cancer affected one couple in particular, 37 year-old Chris Amundsen and his new wife, Laura. This couple refused to be brought down by the diagnosis, and instead searched for alternative treatments. That is exactly what they found. This experimental treatment works by injecting the medicine directly into the tumor, medicine that is traditionally taken orally. “A catheter is placed in the patient’s groin and threaded to the brain”, which means that less of the healthy body receives the medication.

The second phase of the trial will take place soon, and Amundsen will find out how this innovative method affected his brain cancer.

In the meantime, the couple is optimistic and planning for a future. See the full article here
