Meet DonNa

In 2007, a biopsy revealed Donna Gaidamak had Stage 4 lung cancer that had metastasized to her brain. Donna was tested for the ALK gene rearrangement with the Vysis ALK Break Apart FISH Probe Test Kit from Abbott. Results proved she was ALK positive and she was immediately put on XALKORI® (crizotinib). Today, Donna is back to doing the activities she loves: biking, skiing, kayaking and sailing.
