When chemotherapy couldn’t get Esmeralda Pineda’s leukemia under control, doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering turned to immunotherapy. The successful treatment wiped out all signs of her disease, and one year later, she’s still cancer free.
Vilma Rosario’s doctors found a mass in her pelvis just months after her lymphoma had gone into remission. She met Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Ginger Gardner, who biopsied the tumor through a minimally invasive robotic procedure at MSK’s new Josie Robertson Surgery Center. Vilma was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and began chemotherapy treatments close to her home at MSK Westchester. She didn’t let the disease stop her from getting married over Memorial Day weekend.
