My girl friend had cell cancer not tumor.

After the first chemo it appeared to have cleaned it up and for a year it seemed to be going well but then it reappeared with a vengence. Her body was so weakened by the chemo it could not fight anymore. They gave her another course but it had no effect.
She then took part in a experiment that was being tried out in a few other countries. She was given a marrow transplant from her brother. The idea that any white blood cells generated from this marrow would recognise the cancer cells and destroy them as her own white blood cells were not doing. She died to quickly for any effect to show.
Her mother, two sisters had cancer (different types) all were treated with chemo and only the oldest sister survived.
