Patients share clinical trial experiences at Stanford

A new video series produced by the Stanford Cancer Institute highlights three cancer patients and their motivation for participating in clinical trials. In this video, mother-of-three Louisa shares her story about being diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer at the age of 31. Following the recommendation of her physician, she enrolled in a cancer trialĀ at Stanford and is now in remission. The experience inspired her to found a nonprofit called Triple Step Toward the Cure to provide support for women diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and to raise public awareness about the disease.
