What would cause the leading cancer doctor in the world to fly across the country to the funeral of a boy of 8? That’s part of today’s story.
Past guest Roger McCaffrey discusses the terrible ordeal his family endured when they discovered their 4 1/2-year-old son, John, had CML, a stem-cell cancer. The story involves not only a family’s anguish, but also a miracle drug, insurance companies, politics, and the FDA.
