Final Chemotherapy Treatment

On Tuesday October 23, 2018 Marty Griffin had his last chemotherapy treatment for HPV related throat cancer.

And as she sat by supporting him, wife Kristine got emotional about the impact they hope their journey will make on families who have been convinced to have their children vaccinated against HPV.
