Man Completely Healed From Mesothelioma – First Cured?

In a touching story, a pastor, Leon Freitag, appears to be the first person ever to be completely cured of mesothelioma. When Mr. Freitag was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma, he was told he had 12-18 months to live.

Mr. Freitag was able to get in to be seen by one of the nation’s best mesothelioma physicians and he was given medication to attempt to shrink his tumors. Eventually, the physician told Mr. Freitag that he would have to undergo surgery in order to remove the multiple tumors that had spread to his legs. At this point in the treatment, Mr. Freitag had become too weak to work or travel.

When the physician opened Mr. Freitag up for surgery, he found that all of the leg tumors had shrunk and were completely gone. Mr. Freitag was declared cancer-free and may be the first person to ever have been cured of mesothelioma. Physicians are left wondering how this could have occurred and further study may be in the near future.
