      Hi! I have a different kind of cancer. I have melanoma, but I was able to get into a clinical trial at my cancer center and my doctor felt it was my best option so I did it. It was a positive experience and I got great results. Hopefully some others with a similar type of cancer will have some input but for me it was a positive experience

      What type of treatments are you on right now? Or have been on? How are they doing for you? Usually, trials are for when your primary line of treatments are not working. So how is your treatment plan going?

      I participated in a clinical trial. It saved my life! I have lung cancer, but i am a big believer in clinical trials.

      MDS is a precursor to leukemia. It can progress to Acute Myeloid Leukemia, which is very aggressive and very difficult to eradicate. A trial, if time permits, is an excellent idea, as that id the only way that medicine is advanced. i am currently in my 4th clinical trial: 1 for PTCL-NOS, one for PTCL-NOS + AitL + MDS, and 2 for GvHD due to a transplant.
