Every year, thousands of people are diagnosed with blood cancers and blood disorders. For many, treatment through clinical trials provides hope and a potential cure. But finding clinical trials can be challenging. Be The Match Jason Carter Clinical Trials Search & Support was created to help you and your family find and join clinical trials.
Jason, the inspiration for the program, lost his four-and-a-half year battle with leukemia in 2016 at the age of 28. He participated in two clinical trials, giving him more time with his family.
"Jason wanted to make a difference. He tried every new treatment and therapy possible. It was still not enough," says his mother Diana. The Carters want to continue Jason's legacy by helping to get more people to participate in clinical trials. "That number must greatly increase for outcomes to improve more quickly," says his father, Bob.
