SCCA clinical trial offers a follicular lymphoma patient the opportunity to treat his cancer while traveling the world
Bob Ekblad had been running and working out, feeling strong and purposeful as a religious scholar who travels the world advocating for the vulnerable, when he came face to face with his own vulnerability.
