Info about the clinical trial in which Jeff would be participating: http://utm-ext01a.mdacc.tmc.edu/dept/prot/clinicaltrialswp.nsf/Index/2012-0602. This trial is notable as it partly focuses on the c-MYC protein which is one of the driving forces behind Jeff’s tumor.

While it is likely that none of you would be a match for Jeff, please get tested anyway – you could be a match for someone else who needs it.
