FILE - This undated file image provided by the U.S. Army shows Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. A Pentagon investigation concluded in 2010 that Bergdahl walked away from his unit, and after an initial flurry of searching, the military decided not to exert extraordinary efforts to rescue him, according to a former senior defense official who was involved in the matter. Instead, the U.S. government pursued negotiations to get him back over the following five years of his captivity- a track that led to his release over the weekend. (AP Photo/U.S. Army, File)

In this August 2012 photo provided by Arrica Wallace, husband Matthew shaves Arrica's head when her hair was falling out in Manhattan, Kan. Arrica Wallace was 35 when her cervical cancer was discovered in 2011. It spread widely, with one tumor so large that it blocked half of her windpipe. The strongest chemotherapy and radiation failed to help, and doctors gave her less than a year to live. But her doctor heard about an immune therapy trial at the Cancer Institute and got her enrolled. "It's been 22 months since treatment and 17 months of completely clean scans" that show no sign of cancer, Arrica Wallace said. (AP Photo/Courtesy Arrica Wallace)
