Inoperable tumor to cancer free with help of precision genomics

Two days after Steve Hill started coughing up blood, doctors diagnosed him with an inoperable lung tumor. He went down the road of treatment options, but with little success. Then he heard about IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital’s precision genomics team. “They found the one branch of my DNA that had a defect in it,” Hill said. “Going from a baseball sized tumor to cancer free was just something I didn’t think was possible when we first started this journey.”
