Dr. Allen's Story of Survival

Dr. Ann de Wees Allen’s amazing story of survival and her determination to live.

From an athletic 115 pounds to a 78 pound skeleton, Dr. Allen fought to live after being given less than 2 % chance of survival from an aggressive and deadly cancer.

As the youngest person ever diagnosed with terminal stomach and esophageal cancer, and the only long-term survivor of this disease, Dr. Allen’s amazing quest for survival led her to a new path in her life; a life dedicated to science.
