Four years ago, he got cancer and the doctors told him that he had not long to life. He had metastatic cancer and would soon die. Thanks to DNA testing of his tumor and information from an external database, he got an experimental drug. His tumors responded immediately to the trial drug. Thanks to DNA testing Clemens Cornielje still lives.
