In August of 2015, Mr. Johnny Commander was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a cancer related to asbestosis exposure, after seeing his doctor for chest pain. In seeking treatment, he had received very little help after seeing multiple cancer specialists near his hometown and was told his outlook was not good. He and his wife decided to do their own research and decided they needed to go to Houston Texas to visit the Mesothelioma Treatment Center. While at the Mesothelioma Treatment Center Mr. Commander had consultation with Dr. Sugarbaker and the initial plan was to undergo surgical treatment. Unfortunately, Mr. Commander would need more than just surgical treatments. Following his surgery, Dr. Sugarbaker and Dr. Jun Zhang developed a treatment plan utilizing an experimental drug to control Mr. Commander’s mesothelioma. After starting this treatment approximately a year ago, Mr. Commander’s tumor has shrink to nearly half its size and he is feeling better than ever.
