Ashton was diagnosed with stage 4 thyroid cancer. In the discussions Ashton’s parents had with his doctors, they had said that first treatment would be surgery to remove the bulk of the tumors and then the second part of the treatment plan would be to treat the cancer with radioactive iodine, in hopes to get rid of the rest.
Ashton’s parents learned about genomic testing which revealed an NTRK gene fusion. Their doctor recommended treating his NTRK+ solid tumor with VITRAKVI.
This is the story of one patient's experience with VITRAKVI. Not all patient experiences will be the same.
“I first noticed a lump on Ashton’s neck. I thought he was coming down with a cold.”
– Kaylee Leeds, Ashton’s mom
