In March 2014, Robert Johnson had already been told he’d run out of options for treatment of his stage IV adenocarcinoma non-small cell lung cancer. But a referral to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Lowe Center for Thoracic Oncology connected him with an early immunotherapy clinical trial that sent him into remission—a remission that’s still holding more than 3 ½ years on.

Johnson’s medical journey started in March 2012, when the 56-year-old Long Island resident was recovering from hip replacement surgery. Searing pain in his right flank sent him to the emergency room, which he thought might be kidney stones. A CAT scan revealed otherwise: His lymph nodes under his ribs were enlarged. A biopsy determined that Johnson had stage 3B adenocarcinoma non-small cell lung cancer.
