Meet Kim, a CVI Champion

Kim C. participated in one of our clinical trials in 2005. We are so grateful for Kim and all of our patient volunteers! Their participation in clinical trials is a true gift to research and other patients who may be diagnosed with cancer. Because of their dedication, we are able to develop better, more effective vaccines. Kim shared these pictures with us to show why it was important for her to participate in the clinical trial. Kim continues to advocate for the CVI and has even supported a study which helped demonstrate the effectiveness for a booster vaccine. Kim now serves on the CVI Patient Advisory Council.

"I participated in a clinical trial because it was a shot at extending my life - a bucket of hope when I had no hope. The vaccine seemed like a nontoxic alternative to other treatments. It worked. These pictures tell the tale. " - Kim
