Two years ago, Carol was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer which is a very rare and aggressive form of breast cancer. Carol was informed about a clinical trial underway at the Allegheny General Hospital part of the Pittsburgh-based Allegheny Health Network, of an investigational drug for inflammatory breast cancer, called Neratinib, that targets and blocks proteins that help cancer cells to grow. Once accepted and enrolled in the study, the results of the treatment were almost immediate for Carol. “The doctors told me that inflammatory cancer grows fast but it also responds fast to treatment. My response to the clinical trial treatment was remarkable.
After receiving chemotherapy, radiation and having a mastectomy, Carol was declared cancer free. Due to her strong commitment to the clinical trial Carol was prompted to start a nonprofit to raise money for cancer research and to encourage patients to participate in clinical trials.
