Newfound Hope with CAR-T Treatment – Mylène’s Heartwarming Story
In January 2016, a 15-year-old Swiss girl named Mylène was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). The shock and sadness of this leukemia diagnosis was only the beginning of a heartwarming story full of hope, setbacks, and compassion. After a course of chemotherapy lasting five months at Lucerne State Hospital, Mylène’s leukemia relapsed early in July 2016. It then became clear that Mylène had a very resistant type of leukemia with a poor prognosis.
