Doomed By Breast Cancer, Woman Miraculously Cures After Clinical Trial

His doctors only gave him a year to live. A 51-year-old Briton with breast cancer thwarted pessimistic forecasts by attempting a clinical trial in October 2019, reports The Independent. A winning bet: his cancer disappeared.

In November 2017, this mother had been diagnosed particularly aggressive breast cancer, spreading “to the lungs, rib cage and lymph nodes”, according to the British daily. As a first treatment, the fifty-year-old resorted to a mastectomy and chemotherapy sessions and radiotherapy, with success.

Problem, the patient relapsed two years later and the doctors predict a disastrous future for him. So the Briton ultimately relies on an experimental treatment. “I didn’t know if it would work for me. But I thought to myself that at least I could do something to help others and the next generation,” she told the Manchester Evening News.

A conclusive test

The mother joins a clinical trial at the National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Clinical Research Facility (CRF) at The Christie’s Hospital in Manchester. A successful attempt, because, in June 2021, the doctors noticed the disappearance of all cancerous cells.

Those responsible for the trial then congratulated themselves on these “such good results”. A small miracle for this woman, who must continue treatment until 2023. “Now I feel like I’m reborn,” she whispers to The Independent.
