Kevin Carlberg overcame a brain tumor (glioblastoma) thanks to a dendritric cell vaccine developed at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center and the care of his physician, Dr. Linda Liau.

UPDATE 8/31/2009: Kevin Carlberg suffered a recurrence of his cancer and, despite treatment, he passed away on Saturday, August 29, 2009. Through his participation in a clinical trial at UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, Carlberg lived about four times longer than the average glioblastoma patient. His participation also helped move cancer research forward. We thank him.
