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.

Mary Santos Story

VIP Story: Mary

Thyroid Cancer

I just retired July 2013. Two weeks later, after a routine physical exam, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. My doctor had telephoned me to go to her office for this terrifying news. The initial biopsy was "ugly and unidentifiable”. She told me to get my affairs in order. My husband and I were in total shock. I felt doomed and had the fear of imminent death.

The doctor ordered a second biopsy which then identified a rare type of thyroid cancer, "castle," which has never been treated in the United States. The cancer was also lower in my chest. I had a thyroidectomy and my thymus removed on August 1st and subsequently had 6 weeks of radiation and 2 cycles of chemotherapy.
