A transformation in cancer medicine

Genomic science has opened up a whole new way to think about treating cancers using targeted therapies and immunotherapies, designed to attack the actual drivers of cancer. 

These innovative therapies are significantly improving the odds of survival for many cancer patients who were otherwise compelled to receive multiple lines of treatment using standard of care with substantially greater cost, decreasing chances of success with each line of therapy, increased side effects and poorer quality of life, and in the end most often failure.

Current standards of care follow a one-size-fits-all approach.

Existing chemotherapies do not focus on the specific drivers of the individual’s cancer and while they can destroy cancer cells, they destroy healthy cells too, leading to a lengthier and more expensive recovery.

Unfortunately, these approved standards of care are not personalized to the patient’s individual circumstances.

With the right knowledge and tools, however, the physician can offer patients a personalized treatment strategy that improves the person’s chances of survival. 

Know What is Driving Your Cancer

Dr. Brian-Leyland Jones explains why each cancer patient must insist on having his or her tumor sequenced to learn what genetic alterations are driving his or her cancer.

By learning the genomics behind your cancer, you can learn the best available treatment options for you, including targeted therapies, immunotherapies, and clinical trials.

With the right information in hand, you and your doctor can work together to determine the right personalized treatment plan for you.

Beating lung cancer with genomic-guided therapies

Matt was given eight months to live when he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.

That was seven years ago - and counting.

He credits a genomic-based treatment strategy and learning how to advocate for his own care for helping him beat the odds.

As the Founder/CEO of SURVIVEiT®, he is passionate about helping patients find the resources to become survivors.
