Giving Back through clinical trials

As we all know, sometimes the ongoing day to day struggles with an "incurable" cancer can be overwhelming and depressing.

In response I am trying to get out of myself with the volunteer work for BE THE MATCH and Ezer Mizion .

Now I am volunteering to help with research. Will I get anything out of it? I sure hope so, but my best positive results may be just knowing that I helped further understanding of how we react when we are hit with the unexpected.. The research is not about curing, but coping.

It must be enough for now to share that I am putting my name out there as a lab rat or a data point. When I know more about the process, I will share details if that doesn't breach protocol.

You are so wonderfully incredible. Thank you for all you do. It's amazing you can focus when you have your own health challenges and decisions to make. May God richly bless you!

I too joined the BeTheMatch database -- I've done all my swabbing and now I just wait. I'm hoping it is useful someday to someone.
