Mesothelioma Survivors Benefit from Clinical Trials
An artist from Rhode Island, Kendra Ferreira has enjoyed a great life with 3 children and a loving husband. She taught art classes and exhibited her artwork. In 2001, Kendra was diagnosed with mesothelioma after noticing her stomach swelling without any weight gain.
She was originally diagnosed with ovarian cancer and had a hysterectomy. It was then that her doctor realized that the cancer had originated as peritoneal mesothelioma, which spread to the ovaries.
After finding mesothelioma specialists, she took part in a clinical trial surgery, followed by chemotherapy. She was sensitive to many of the chemotherapy blends, but her specialists were able to tailor them to her specific needs. This resulted in her recovery and current health 10 years later.
