Understanding Clinical Trials

How did you first get started in a clinical trial?

I first started at 8 years old. My healthcare team described clinical trials as a hopeful opportunity that may get rid of my cancer using teddy bear demonstrations and drawings on a whiteboard. These methods helped me to understand my disease and treatment options, which also aided in my comfort with the uncertainty that can be associated with clinical research participation. How about you?

Hi JBrown, a very special welcome to our new ambassador! Thank you for sharing your story. What I found your story really highlights is how clinical trials help young children, along with adults.
