Cancer clinical trials can be a lung cancer patient’s best option for accessing the most promising new treatments. It’s important to understand how clinical trials work and how to talk to your doctor about which trial might be a good fit. In this episode of the Hope With Answers: Living With Lung Cancer podcast, we talk to a veteran of four lung cancer clinical trials (and the trials of online dating!) Linnea Olson, lung cancer advocates and great friends Jill Feldman, Ivy Elkins, and Lysa Buonanno about how they incorporate advocacy into their busy lives. Plus, get more detail on what to expect in a clinical trial from advocate Janet Freeman-Daily and lung cancer expert Dr. Ross Camidge of the University of Colorado Hospital.
