Patient Testimonials

Rod Quiros


Rod Quiros, lymphoma, cancer trial participant
“Clinical trials are the only way we can get closer to a cure, or at least to making cancer a disease you can live with.”

A diagnosis of cancer is shocking to anyone, let alone to someone in their 20s who had never been in a hospital. Yet it was just days after Christmas when physicians confirmed that Rod Quiros was suffering from advanced lymphoma and a large tumor in his rectal wall. Rod’s physician was concerned about the risks of surgery and suggested a clinical trial that involved using existing drugs in a new way.
