Patient Stories Linda Craig

 

The latest and most sophisticated forms of cancer treatment are offered to qualifying patients who participate in clinical trials, or studies designed to test the effectiveness of promising new therapies.

A case in point is Linda Craig, who agreed to enter a clinical trial at the OSUCCC – James after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

"I felt a strong need to do this because I have two grown daughters, and if I could save them from going through what I had to go through, then I wanted to do that," Craig said, noting that she put a lot of thought into her decision and realized that new treatments will come about only through research-based clinical studies.

"There's no way we'll ever find out about new treatments unless people step to the plate and say, 'Yes, I am going to do this,' " Craig explained. "Because I chose to take part in a clinical trial at the OSUCCC – James, I truly believe I received the best treatment there is to have."
