2019whatayear,

I cannot participate in this focus group bc I'm not on immunotherapy yet.

However, if you find out that they are publishing anything about this, or posting anything about this focus group, could you please let us all know? It would be very useful information.

Thank you.

2019whatayear,

That link works. I plan to register, although I've already had two tissue biopsies, one circulating DNA blood test, and one liquid biopsy. I think I'm living precision medicine! I also follow webinars on the Cancer Research Institute, which is a great site for those interested in immunotherapy.

Very interesting. Thanks for posting.
