The trial has helped me get back to living my life, my way. I choose to participate because I want to help advance cancer medicine (and spend a little more time with my granddaughter too).

In the face of cancer, from the day I was diagnosed, I now live everyday as my last day and I live fully in the moment. I would never have imagined, during my prime life stage with a promising career and future, that I would be diagnosed with terminal lung cancer without any sign of illness or physical discomfort. But life happens, and when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. I'm am so glad I participated in Stanford's clinical trial. It is through my participation which proved positive results in which has allowed me to lead a normal, active life all the while giving me more precious time to enjoy with my family and friends.

I was never diligent about self-exam, but that day in the shower, with my soapy hands, I casually felt my breasts. That’s when I felt a lump. In that moment, I intuitively knew I had cancer. When I learned there is no standard treatment protocol for triple negative breast cancer, my breast specialist recommended that I consider a clinical trial.  With his guidance, support and knowledge of available trials, plus my own research, the choice became clear. I am happy to report that I had a complete response to the trial and today I am cancer free! Less than five months after treatment ended. I was able to reach my goal of climbing to 14,000 feet in the Kumbu region of Nepal! Life is good.

I was very fortunate to be selected to participate in Stanford’s clinical trial. Due to my condition I had hundreds of basal cell carcinomas for over 3o years and watched them disappear in only a few months. It has greatly improved my quality of life.
