A Tribute to Alvin Dominic de Guzman
Alvin was my nephew, a fiercely talented musician with a modest, loyal, caring spirit. He died in 2017, after a 3-year battle with sarcoma that had spread to his brain. His family raised funds to produce DeltaRex-G for him, but he passed away before sufficient funds were raised to manufacture the medicine. As a tribute to Alvin, we are continuing our effort so that cancer patients can benefit from gene-targeted medicines like DeltaRex-G, which has saved the lives of eleven patients with sarcoma, pancreatic cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, kidney cancer, and B cell lymphoma.
