In October of 1993, Neil Aldoroty, MD, an accomplished, healthy, 47-year-old doctor was at home opening his mail, and read the radiology report from his annual chest X-Rays with the ominous words, “suspicious tumors observed, may be malignant”. Stanford Medical Center corroborated his diagnosis as Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Neil & Karen numb from shock were unwilling to accept his fate and sought treatment at MD Anderson. In 1997, the cancer returned and Neil was diagnosed and battled Stage IV Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma three more times until he was given an experimental drug developed in 1993 (when Neil was first diagnosed) by Dr. Dennis Moore Jr. at MD Anderson. Through funding for cancer research, Rituxin was able to transition from the labs to the clinics to help save a precious live such as Neil. After being affirmed cancer free in 2010, Neil & Karen were able to focus on living life and after being honored at the 2011 V Wine Celebration, they were able to take their dream vacation to Italy after seventeen years of battling cancer.
