We are proud to present this series on Clinical Trials Experiences.


This unique patient education program gives a voice to patients with experience in participating in a clinical trial. Through storytelling and sharing their experiences, patients can educate others who are considering a similar journey.

 

In this first video, Melinda Bachini, a 12-year survivor of cholangiocarcinoma discusses her diagnosis and her next steps for dealing with the treatment of this rare cancer.

 

Many thanks to our sponsors! #Exelixis #Novartis #Merck #Lilly
