PCF & The VA: Shepherding Extraordinary Care
Every year, 12,000 more veterans are diagnosed with prostate cancer. The Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are partnering to prevent, screen and promote research to speed the development of treatments and cures for prostate cancer among veterans.
As part of the PCF/VA collaboration, PCF funded researcher, Dr. Bruce Montgomery, performed deep genetic sequencing of patient Christopher Seelye’s cancer; the resulting drug regimen created an extraordinary response for his metastatic disease… taking him from a PSA of 200 to 1, and moving his metastatic scans to clear.
Watch the video below to learn more about the PCF/VA partnership and Christopher Seelye’s extraordinary response to treatment.
