Peter McNeil is from Eagle Point near Bairnsdale in Victoria. He is being treated at Peter Mac on a clinical trial of combination immunotherapy for advanced stage Melanoma led by Professor Grant McArthur.

Peter considers himself lucky to have access to an immune-based therapy, similar to that which helped save Ron Walker’s life. Now with world-class research labs and almost space-age facilities, Peter Mac is helping patients like Ron and Peter who had otherwise simply run out of options.

Peter is thrilled that more people could soon benefit from the cutting edge treatments that have seen his cancer almost disappear. Two years after being given 3 to 12 months to live, Peter is thankful for his second chance and looking forward to getting back home so he can care for his wife.

Watch Peter's story below.
