Young Boy Says Obama’s 2007 Stem Cell Research Saved His Life

By Posted on 0 1 m read

During President Obama’s 2007 campaign stop, he made a promise and little did he know, that promise would later save someone’s life.

Gavin Nore, a cancer survivor from Fort Dodge, Iowa shared that the President’s commitment to stem cell research is the reason he’s still here today. When the two met during a campaign stop, President Obama promised Nore that he would continue stem cell research during his presidency and he did.

Nore was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma when he was 14 and though he was cancer free a couple months later, the cancer later returned.

“I had to have a stem cell transplant. I beat the battle once again,” Nore wrote to the president.

He continued with, “I would like to thank you very much for continuing the research. If the research haden’t [sic] continued, I wouldn’t be here today.”

Be sure to read the entire heartwarming letter below.

Dear Mr. President
