Michael Robinson

Cellular Therapy, Recipient, Wisconsin

Michael was 39 when he was diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. He underwent five different types of chemotherapy treatments, and currently receives CAR-T cellular therapy to turn his own cells into cancer fighters. 

While Michael may still need a bone marrow transplant to survive, he is hopeful that new research and discoveries into CAR-T cell therapy can help him and other patients conquer cancer and get a second chance at life. 

“CAR-T research is important, because it works and gives hope,” he says.
