Andy's Story

Patient Story - Andy SimonBrain Tumor Patient Transforms into ‘Superman’ with the Help of a Clinical Trial
Andy Simon’s admirers started calling the indomitable brain cancer patient “Superman” even before they knew how remarkably well his body and spirit responded to a novel clinical trial.

Faster than a speeding bullet, the 52-year-old ran five miles following his first radiation treatment. More powerful than a locomotive, the father pushed through chemotherapy treatments to celebrate his daughter’s college graduation and his son’s wedding.

And this dynamic man sporting the Superman emblem intends to leap beyond cancer with a boost from an innovative clinical trial at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center and his legion of supporters, Team Simon Strong.

“Andy has shown tremendous spirit and determination during treatment,” says Lisa Rogers, DO, his neuro-oncologist.
