Stacy Erholtz, 50, was suffering from blood cancer, which had sadly spread throughout her whole body. She even grew a tumor on her forehead, which her children named Evan.

But, thanks to the new treatment it has gone into complete remission.

Her cancer is now undetectable and Stacy will hopefully be given the all clear next month. Speaking of her treatment, she said: “We don’t let the cancer cloud hang over our house, lets put it that way, or we would have lived in the dark for the last 10 years.”

The trial took place at the Mayo Clinic in Pequot Lakes, Minnesota. Dr Steven Russell said of the treatment: “It’s a landmark. We’ve known for a long time that we can give a virus intravenously and destroy metastatic cancer in mice.

“Nobody’s shown that you can do that in people. 36-hours after the virus infusion was finished, she told me, ‘Evan has started shrinking’.”

It took several weeks, but soon all of Stacy’s tumors had disappeared.

But the trial wasn’t without it’s complications as minutes into it Stacy suffered a headache, before shaking and vomiting, it’s been reported.

The experimental trial is now expected to be expanded.
