Share the Lazarex Experience

SF Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt teams up with Brittani Powell, a young woman saved by a clinical trial, as ambassadors for Lazarex Cancer Foundation. Lazarex made sure Brittani could participate in the trial for the past 4 years by covering the travel expenses her family couldn't continue to afford. Jeremy encourages the public support of Lazarex Cancer Foundation.

Brittany's Story

VIP Story: Brittany Hess

Update: January, 2014 - No New Tumors :-)!

To meet Brittany Hess is to see a vibrant, 33-year old woman with boundless enthusiasm and a passionate zest for life. This belies the fact that she has been courageously fighting an extremely rare soft tissue cancer called Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma (ASPS) since age 19 when she was diagnosed Stage IV. Her only symptom was a small lump on her left thigh, but by the time the lump was diagnosed, the cancer had metastasized to both of her lungs with over 50 tumors.

We begin this New Year with hearts full of special joy and strengthened Hope from the VERY GOOD results of Brittany's most recent (clinical trial status) 55th month chest CT scans in Edmonton and her quarterly brain and spinal MRI's in Seattle. VERY thankfully, all of the scans showed continued stable disease with no new tumors :-).!!!
