Developing cancer in 1984, Jane was a pioneer patient of the National Cancer Institute in the Colon-Rectal protocol, where she was treated with TILs for her widespread metastatic colorectal cancer throughout her abdomen at the NCI and had a very good response. She survived for 22 years since doctors took out her three metastatic tumors, which proved to be one of the cures for melanoma. From the NCI, she went to the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute where she was a volunteer patient for Dr. Michael Lotze, participating in studies there. The family would like to thank all of her Doctors and nurses through the years, as well as Suncoast Hospice House, Brookside, for their care during her last days.
