Kari Worth's Five Year Celebration Journey
In 2005 we told Kari Worth's story (published in our December e-Health News) about her experience with IL2 biochemotherapy for melanoma. Biochemotherapy is an intensive drug treatment regime that combines three chemotherapy drugs with two active biological agents, interleukin 2 (IL-2) and interferon. It's been five years since Kari was first diagnosed with stage IV melanoma and now it's time to celebrate. Kari's 555 Walk of Her Life began on May 1, 2008. Kari and her father walked from her home in Napa to California Pacific Medical Center where she received her life-saving biochemotherapy treatments.
On Monday May 5th, nationally recognized as 'Melanoma Monday,' Kari and her father walked across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco with her two children in celebration of being cancer free for five years. She, along with her father, delivered a bottle of sparkling wine to her treating oncologist David Minor, M.D. We are very happy for Kari and her family.
