In this special Clinical Trials Day and Melanoma Month feature, hear from two Melanoma survivors as they discuss the insurmountable odds faced by their diagnosis and subsequent illness. The challenges they faced with not only the initial treatment, but also those experienced by the clinical trial process. Both T.J. Sharpe and David Aizer share their unique perspectives on their journey's and the different paths that they took that shared some astounding similarities. Yet with all of this adversity they faced, they maintained a positive attitude and outlook, refusing to let their conditions get the best of them. These survivors help us in the clinical research industry maintain intention and focus as we work to safely speed the execution of clinical trials because we know that patients are waiting for the medicines of tomorrow.
