@spiderwalshy Not at this time, but through clinical trials our researchers are exploring new uses for immunotherapy with the hope that we’ll be able to use it to treat more cancers, such as pancreatic cancer.

Because immunotherapy trains the immune system to attack cancer, rather than attacking cancer directly, immunotherapy’s side effects may differ from those of others types of cancer treatment.Here’s what our experts want patients to know. @viveksubbiah @vanmorrisMD #endcancer https://t.co/wGd40rhzTq
The 70-year-old Vietnam War veteran thought he was just meeting up with a few longtime friends for lunch. When he made his way into a private dining area, he was greeted by nine familiar faces who had a gift for him — replacement military medals.Grigaitis, who has been a resident at the Grand Island Veterans Affairs Medical Center, earned a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and other medals while serving in Vietnam from 1968 to 1969 in the 173rd Airborne Brigade of the United States Army. Somewhere along the way, his service medals were lost.Fellow veteran Bob Labedz learned about the lost medals and set out to get replacements.
Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Army Veteran Huey Nelson Adams. Huey served during the Vietnam War from 1970-1971.Raised in North Carolina, Huey was drafted into the military out of high school then received basic training at Fort Knox and Fort Dix. Upon completing basic training, Huey was assigned to the 525th Quartermaster Company and sent to Vietnam.During his time in Vietnam, Huey was tasked with patrolling Long Binh and Saigon where he would come under sporadic sniper fire. Near the end of his service, Huey was stationed as a guard for a camp in Quang Tri. One night, after working multiple guard shifts without rest, Huey noticed the enemy had overrun the camp and reported it on the radio. During the ensuing battle, Huey was knocked unconscious and evacuated to Da Nang. Because of this traumatic battle, Huey suffered from PTSD and was sent home.Huey now lives in Clinton, North Carolina, where he continues to advocate for Veteran’s mental health.Thank you for your service, Huey!
