Lung Cancer (02:21)

Guy Miller smoked a pack a day for 20 years; he quit after he began coughing up blood. Learn about his diagnosis of Stage 4 lung cancer with metastases.

Breast Cancer (02:55)

Athlete Agathe Ratelle developed a 3.5 cm carcinoma in her breast despite having no risk factors. Her treatment will start with chemotherapy.

Despite the development of potential cancer therapies, clinical trials are not keeping pace. Guy, Agathe, Dennis, and Claude will participate in a clinical trial.

Denis: 4 Years Surviving (01:29)

Positive Response to Targeted Therapy (02:28)

Denis receives another round of the experimental drug Erbitux; his cancer is spreading.

Claude: Remission (03:03)

Claude starts another treatment cycle that includes targeted therapy. An "antisens" molecule blocks gene expression, making chemotherapy more effective.

Treatments are available to help the body tolerate a transplant. Claude receives stem cells from his sister. The graft attacked Claude's organs, and he died.

Cancer Updates (01:36)

Agathe is still in remission and Denis' sustained survival continues to astound doctors. Claude and Guy both died from their illnesses.
