How clinical trials give cancer patients like me hope

This video is from a speech I gave this morning to a group of pharmaceutical, industry and medical professionals involved with clinical trials.

This video is from a speech I gave this morning to a group of pharmaceutical, industry and medical professionals involved with clinical trials. It’s a little long, but I go through my medical history and my view of clinical trials, their utility and the hope they give to patients who have tried conventional treatments with limited success.

This weekend I am excited for two very important events. The first is the Shoppers Drug Mart Weekend to End Women’s Cancers. Although I can’t walk in it because I don’t yet have the energy and stamina for that, the walkers do come close to my house and I’m hoping to see them when they are in my neighbourhood. I will try to get some video when they come close.

And this Sunday is the Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope. Again, while I don’t think I can walk, I will go there to talk with some of the other survivors and people affected by ovarian cancer. I hope to get some more videos to add to It’s Time To Shout.

Hope everyone has a great weekend, and I will update you on the weekend’s activities next week!
