Patient Testimonials

Jim Wilson

Jim Wilson, lung and liver cancer, cancer trial participant
“The most important thing to a cancer patient is time.”

“The most important thing to a cancer patient is time,” Jim Wilson says, “and you don’t want to spend it waiting.” He knows. When he felt a small pain in his side, this 64-year-old stopped by a walk-in clinic. When he heard the diagnosis—lung cancer metastasized to his liver—he checked out his options. His family physician told him about clinical trials and sent him to a pulmonary specialist. With the diagnosis confirmed, Jim was ready to meet immediately with an oncologist. He called in his wife, son, daughter, and daughter-in-law to help.
