Cancer clinical trials provide patients with access to new therapies: the next generation of treatment. By joining a trial, you can help move cancer treatment forward and provide real hope for a better future.
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. We aim to provide a range of resources that speak to a diverse population of cancer patients, caregivers, and their healthcare team in a changing environment.
