May 30th, this year, will be seven years since my grandma died of cancer. She spent her final days at Mayo Clinic, where they assured us their researchers are constantly trying to find away to kill cancer... they hold true to their word.

49-year-old, Stacy Erholtz, a multiple myeloma patient from Pequot Lakes... has exhausted all of her treatment options. Then doctors at Mayo Clinic had one more idea, to inject Erholtz with a high dose of the measles vaccine during a clinical trial. The dose was big enough to vaccinate nearly 10-million-people.

What happened in the weeks to come, is nothing short of a miracle. A day and a half after being injected, doctors noticed the tumors starting to shrink. Over the next few weeks, lab results were improving, tumors continued to shrink and by week SEVEN... Erholtz was in complete remission! The doctors couldn't find any trace of cancer in her body.

Dr. Stephen Russel, a professor of molecular medicine at Mayo Clinic, said, " the study is ground breaking"...  “We’ve known for a long time that we can give a virus intravenously and destroy metastatic cancer in mice. Nobody’s shown that you can do that in people before.”

The researchers and doctors at Mayo Clinic feel they are on to something big and have planed a bigger study for next fall to see whether the measles vaccine treatment is effective for a larger number of patients.
