Experimental treatment erases all signs of cancer for newlywed



One newlywed couple in the United Kingdom is rejoicing after learning an experimental treatment successfully erased all signs of the husband's cancer, according to ABC News

Mike Brandon was diagnosed with leukemia just one month after proposing to his now wife, Kate Brandon in 2014. 

Mike Brandon received a bone marrow transplant and went into remission, but last year the couple found out the cancer had returned. 

The couple came to the U.S. to participate in an experimental cancer treatment aimed at reviving Mike Brandon's immune system to fight the cancer. 

The couple raised nearly $600,000 for the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania Health System in an effort to find a new treatment. 

On a Facebook page, Kate Brandon said her husband suffered severe side effects from the treatment. 

"Mike has been in intensive care for over a week but I am pleased to say he is finally now back on the wonderful Oncology Unit," Kate Brandon wrote. "We were told that paradoxically the sicker that people become during this treatment, the more likely they are to have a good outcome."

Shortly after, the couple announced Mike Brandon's latest tests showed no signs of cancer.
