This weekend in Vatican city Gabriel attended “The Fourth International Vatican Conference” which looked at science, technology via medicine that could impact culture and society. He talked about his wife Meabh Flynn being hit with excruciating pain in her shoulder. She was diagnosed with an especially aggressive form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma said, Multiple tumors, the largest the size of a cantaloupe, encroached on internal organs causing interminable pain. Each line of chemotherapy failed. Meabh dug into the internet and found a medical team led by Dr. William Li and Dr. Vincent Li. They introduced her to cutting edge gene-engineered treatment method called CAR T-Cell which strengthen the power of her own immune system and attack her tumors

After a single infusion of CAR T-Cell therapy, her cancer disappeared. Today, she has her life back and is full of energy. Meabh’s advice to people facing a similar journey with cancer is to not accept a bleak prognosis and challenge every bit of bad news.

“Stay focused, get the best advice and believe in yourself,” Meabh said. “Don’t let someone say there’s very little we can do for you and think that that’s the end. Because it doesn’t have to be.”

Gabriel broke down went talking about this treatment that to him was a miracle and showed hope for others. – by John Beaudin
