Review for Lazarex Cancer Foundation, Danville, CA, USA
My doctor had run out of treatment options but my Stage 4 cancer continued to progress. It is a fairly rare cancer and no real effective treatments. My doctor suggested I see a specialist in Santa Monica, CA who suggested a drug trial. The trial required that I travel to Santa Monica 4 weeks out of 6. I am a teacher, so you can guess that I don’t make a lot of money. Before Lazarex had the funds to help me with travel, I had used nearly all of my savings, just on travel, hotel, and meals (which were mostly hamburgers to keep the cost down.) I was running out of money fast and worried that I was going to have to give up the treatment, which had stopped the progression of my cancer. The help Lazarex has provided has allowed me to continue the trial and extended my life.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. It's great to learn that you are stable with no disease progression! We are here to support you through your clinical trial treatments and wish you all the best.
