In 2015, the Cancer Support Community began an initiative to bring fresh ideas, new language and new approaches to increasing participation in cancer clinical trials by providing a range of resources that speak to a diverse population of cancer patients, caregivers and their health care team in a changing environment.

In Their Own Words

"What keeps me going is life; there's so much joy to be had."

—Elisa, a metastatic breast cancer survivor, traveled from Chile to Chicago to particpate in a clinical trial.
