Cards for Cole: Birthday cards sought for 2-year-old Downers Grove boy battling leukemia [Video]

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. (WLS) — A 2-year-old boy from Downers Grove is being treated at Lurie Children's Hospital for acute lymphoid leukemia.

To protect his vulnerable immune system, Cole Magnus cannot have a traditional party for his birthday on November 1. That's why his family is invited the public to send Cole birthday cards for his big day when he turns 3 next week.

"He is responding well to treatment, and that means his immune system is suppressed," his mom, Brittany, said. "We are trying to keep him in a bubble now more than ever, and that's why we set up a PO box for his birthday cards."

Cole loves Halloween, spiders, ghosts, music, dancing and playing chef!

Well-wishers are invited to send cards to:

BELINDA: Tisagenlecleucel in B-cell NHL [Video]

Michael Bishop, MD, University of Chicago, Chicago, IL, discusses results from the Phase III BELINDA trial (NCT03570892), which assessed tisagenlecleucel (tisa-cel), a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, in patients with aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The primary endpoint, which was event-free survival, was not met, and tisa-cel was not superior to the current standard of care. Dr Bishop highlights the time taken for the therapy to be administered, bridging therapy, and the dosage of lymphodepleting chemotherapy to be factors affecting the trial results. This interview took place at the 63rd ASH Annual Meeting and Exposition congress in Atlanta, GA.
