He is mourning the death of his mother from breast cancer and the suicide of his father, and he has an inoperable brain tumour; he’s lost all his friends, including his long term girlfriend, as well as his job because he keeps having hallucinations, and they’re getting more lurid. Then he gets what seems to be an answer to his prayers; there is an experimental cure – Resolimab – and he’s invited to take part in the first human study on it.
