Welcome to My Personal Page- My Goal is to raise $50,000 for CAR-T Therapy!
Dr. Arleigh McCurdy
I'm a hematologist in Ottawa specializing in Multiple Myeloma and plasma cells disorders. I do a mix of clinical work seeing patients, research, and teaching. I am presently working with the rest of our group at the Ottawa Blood Diseases Centre to bring CAR-T treatment to our patients. Treatments using CAR-T cell immunotherapy have had amazing results in treating patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma, resulting in many patients achieving remission. Further, it has the potential to be very effective in other types of cancer as well!
We are currently delivering this treatment in Ottawa to patients with lymphoma and leukemia, and planning to expand this to patients with multiple myeloma in the near future. While this work is exciting and hopeful, ongoing support for our research is needed to move forward!
I have teamed up with Dr. Natasha Kekre, a hematologist specializing in stem cell transplant and a researcher of immunotherapy, to dance off against our colleagues in support of CAR-T therapy. One of Natasha’s patients, Stefany, has had this therapy- check out her story at: https://ohfoundation.ca/our-supporters/car-t-cell-therapy%E2%80%94new-hope-when-standard-cancer-treatments-fail
We are participating in The Ottawa Hospital Dancing with the Docs competition on April 6, 2019 at Casino Lac Leamy.
Help us win the Medicine Ball and make a donation in support of the Ottawa Hospital!
