Diversity in clinical trials is important to me because it gives a voice to the hopeless. The day I received my diagnosis of Stage II Breast Cancer, I was unsure of the road ahead. To many it is considered a death sentence. Through diversity in clinicals trials minorities have a chance at life. Because of diversity in clinical trials, I was able to ring the bell, my children still have their mother, my husband still has his wife, and my family and friends can still see my smiling face.
