  • Michael Wylie - Hello,
    My name is Michael Wylie and I have followed your story for several years now after stumbling upon the short video made by GE, highlighting the engineered virus immunotherapy performed under the doctors at the Penn University. I just wanted to say that your story has not only inspired me, but continues to push me in the medical field while I prepare myself with advanced degrees in medicine in hopes that someday I can be a part of the team who renders the term “cancer” a term only used in past tense.

    Thank you so much for continuing to share your story,
