She sought treatment at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital where she enrolled in a clinical trial of two immunotherapy agents, nivolumab (Opdivo) and ipilimumab (Yervoy) through Georgetown University's Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. Within weeks her cancer began to shrink. Today she is cancer free. Leta's treatment regimen for advanced melanoma is now FDA approved.
