Finding A Clinical Trial With Dana Dorsife Of The Lazarex Cancer Foundation

Mel sits down with Dana Dorsife founder of the Lazarex Cancer Foundation.  Dana founded Lazarex in 2006 after her brother in law Mike was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer.  Mike and his wife searched for treatment options that would give Mike more time with his wife and three children.  Mike found a clinical trial that gave him more time with his wife and children. Since then, Dana has fought tirelessly for patient advocacy and the expansion of available resources on behalf of those cancer patients who have been told they have run out of medical options and there is no hope left. 

Dana talks about her brother, the importance of clinical trials, and how Lazarex can help a cancer patient who is looking for a clinical trial. If you know a survivor who is looking for a clinical trial then this is one show you don't want to miss!!

All new and available on demand now!!
