Why Oncology?

“Cancer has touched each of us in one way or another, through someone we know or acquaintances. Even the word “Cancer” can bring a reaction of fear. With watching the advancement in Oncology studies over the years, they offer hope to replace that fear. Each study I have worked on has given me passion for each form of oncology trials I work on.”

This is what drives Becky:

A story that I share with people I meet who I am encouraging to investigate “Clinical Trials.gov” for potential studies is about a time when I was working on a Multiple Myeloma study as a CRA. A site Study Coordinator came in and shared about a subject on the study that was in Hospice and tried the study as a last option. We were now 2 years into the study and this subject was back to living her life, healthy and doing very well.  It gives me goosebumps every time I share the story. It is a perfect example of why we work in Clinical Trials. I feel privileged to be in this industry.”
