Friends and Family Share Their Memories

Bom dia , meu nome é Maria de Fátima Freire da Silva, Brasil, Rio de Janeiro. Como amiga da família e vizinha da época de adolescência no Brasil.

"José Mário uma pessoa agradável e gentil que deixou seus frutos de uma vida, mediante a doença nunca demostrou desânimo. Que o Senhor Deus te guarde no seu eterno repouso e que as sementes que deixastes se multipliquem por gerações."

Saudades eternas amigo de adolescência

_Fatima Freire

We mourn the passing of Jose M. Parracho, one of the Exon 20 Group members who had the longest progression-free survival on amivantamab.

Jose was the quintessential model patient--so sweet, wanting to do everything right, and his world class oncology teams loved him.

The Exon 20 Group, as we do with many patient cases, learned a great deal from what Jose experienced throughout. Those insights have been helping and will continue to assist other exon 20 insertion patients as well.

On behalf of everyone at the Exon 20 Group, we send our deepest sympathies to the Parracho and Inacio families on Jose's passing.
