Pancreatic Cancer Clinical Trials

If you, or someone you know , are interested in clinical trials. Please visit the website ClinicalTrials.gov - this link takes you directly to pancreatic cancer related trials, but you can also go to the ClinicalTrials.gov main page and look for all sorts of other clinical trials.

Speaking from semi-experience with Jason, the process is fairly straightforward. Do be sure to check with your insurance to see what, if anything, they will cover.  In Jason's case, the insurance company said they would not cover any expense related to a clinical trial.  (We're looking at you, BCBS!)  Of course, we were lucky enough to receive financial support from people buying things from my online shop and also very kind donations from friends, family, and complete strangers. (Thank you!) If you do go down the clinical trial path, I would highly recommend trying to do some sort of fundraising, even if your insurance will cover some of your expenses. It can be a very expensive venture!

In other news, our big WAFF interview is tomorrow. I'm a little nervous, but it should be good.
