Karen's Club **5-Years Alive** Fundraiser
In just a few short weeks I (Karen) will be celebrating an incredible milestone.
According to the American Cancer Society, I will be one of the 12% of Metastatic Triple Negative Breast Cancer patients to reach a 5 year survival rate.
Fighting for the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial taught me the importance of self advocacy and making an informed choice about treatment options.
Our mission is simple: ensure ALL people have the information and support they need to engage with clinical trials as a treatment option. Communities of color have historically been disenfranchised from cutting edge medicine, by medical racism and the deep distrust it has instilled. Karen's Club brings information and support directly from individuals of color who've been through and conducted trials, who can engage directly, truthfully and openly about their experience.
Your donation will ensure we can continue to provide consistent peer support to patients and caregivers in need, run regular webinars connecting patients and researchers, and train patient navigators and other providers to dispense culturally competent care and support.
