This story is one that gives hope for the future. The young man, Daniel Roper is 25 years old and he was very close to dying from melanoma because the tumours had spread throughout his body.
Fortunately, Daniel had been chosen to be part of a control group for an experimental drug that is designed to switch off the cancer gene and disable the driver.
Daniel received treatment on 28 February when he was very close to dying. Four days later Daniel walked out of the Austin hospital, a new young man.
At this point in time no one knows the long term prognosis for Daniel. I hope he will have a happy and healthy future life.
