When Adam first came to the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center, he had cancer throughout much of his body. What started as testicular cancer had moved up to his kidneys, his lungs, and his brain. His condition was critical and his treatment needs were complex.
There are very few places in the world where Adam could have found the care he received here. His case demanded that multiple sub-specialists – including lung surgeons, brain surgeons, urologists, and cancer surgeons – coordinate their work over a long period of time. Fortunately for Adam, all the care, expertise, and dedication he needed resides right here at the UNM Cancer Center.
Today Adam is cancer free. His recovery required him to relearn some basic motor skills, but he accomplished that – and much more. Now he’s back in college and pursuing a career in music. Rock on, Adam!
