Nine-year-old Michael Feeney of Ridgewood has been fighting Ewingās sarcoma, a rare bone cancer, since he was 6.
After standard treatments to reduce the cancerous tumors were repeatedly unsuccessful, Michaelās parents took a chance on a long shot- lab mice.
NorthJersey.com reported that Michaelās parents paid $25,000 for a laboratory to inject pieces of their sonās tumors into the mice and test different drugs on them. After a few months, the laboratory discovered a three-drug cocktail that began destroying the cancer cells in the mice.
