Title: Kellie’s Story—NCORP Clinical Trial Participant
Description: “If someone can benefit, then I’m happy to participate. And if I can benefit, then all the better.”
— Kellie, NCORP Clinical Trial Participant

After being diagnosed with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), Kellie jumped at the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial offered through the NCI Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP), a national network that brings cancer clinical trials and care delivery studies to people in their own communities. This means that Kellie can participate in the clinical trial without having to travel far from home to receive treatment at a major cancer center. Without NCORP, she would have had to travel hundreds of miles to receive her treatments and participate in the trial.
