Seven and a half years of all kinds of bladder cancer and treatments, then metastatic.... I tried to get in a clinical trial for months to no avail. Since I was terminal and there were PD-1 cells present in the tumor, my oncologists worked with Bristol-Myers Squibb and I was given Nuvolamab. I am now in remission!!!!! There is hope! Immunotherapy can be given should ant thing return and so far side effects are minimal!!! FINALLY!!
