Montgomery Lax, a teacher and avid marathon runner, had to take a step back when she was diagnosed with a rare brain tumor at the age of 30. She felt a weight of isolation and heaviness on her shoulders, but found community at the Texas Oncology–Austin Brain Tumor Center.

“Treatments for brain cancer affect every other part of your life,” shared Montgomery. Since receiving her diagnosis, she has completed the New York City Marathon and is looking forward to running the Chicago marathon later this year.

We're excited to announce that Texas Oncology is now offering a clinical trial that uses mRNA technology to fight melanoma.

"This is truly personalized immunotherapy," Jeff Yorio, M.D., Texas Oncology–Austin Central, shared. "In this trial, we are focusing the immune system on each specific patient's melanoma as the mRNA vaccine is being designed based on the [patient's] genetic code."

"I think it’s important for people to know that colore**al cancer does not solely affect older adults. We have seen a rise in early onset colore**al cancer for reasons not fully understood, and early detection is key."

“What you don’t know can’t hurt you.” That was Fredella Prather’s philosophy that led her to avoid colonoscopies, until she was met with a stage III colore**al cancer diagnosis.

“Had I just gotten the one [colonoscopy] early on, all of this could have been prevented. Get a colonoscopy – it is the best 30 minutes of sleep you will ever get!”
