        Thanks for posting.  While I am certain a clinical trial I was lucky to participate in from 2010-2013 saved my life, clinical trials are a trip, not for the faint of heart, and could do with some major improvements!!!

        For those of you who are interested, here are some thoughts about clinical trial design by some melanoma big dogs as well as my thoughts on additional links:    

        Wishing you all my best!  C

            Hahaha! The link with the Parachute “Trial” was hilarious!! Thanks for that..

            Made me laugh, thanks for posting!



              Thanks! Pretty funny. I am glad we are not the only ones who have seen the crazy side of trials. Jake did his first one recently and it was not the best experience! I know many here have had their lives saved and I know we need them! It’s just hard to see the crap involved too! Good to have some humor on the topic:)
