June is national cancer survivors month and a time for people to recognize those who have been diagnosed with cancer. It's also a time to highlight the life-saving treatments that are available.

Some of the latest treatments include a therapy made from a patient’s own blood cells to help treat those with blood cancers such as lymphoma or leukemia. Dr. Lori Leslie, a Lymphoma specialist at Hackensack Meridian Health's John Theurer cancer center, and Michael - who was diagnosed with lymphoma, discuss some innovative treatments.
