Research saved my life...
"My name is Nancy Sutton. Eleven years ago I was diagnosed with CML, which is a cancer of the blood. I was on several treatments at first, but none of them worked. I finally got into a clinical trial and this drug worked beautifully. My counts are now normal!
"When Roland and I decided to support the Maine Medical Center, we naturally thought of research because, simply put, without research I wouldn't be here today."
About 3,000 people are enrolled in clinical trials at MMC, bringing cutting edge treatments to some of our sickest patients. These clinical trials and the extensive infrastructure that supports them, including investigators, nurse researchers and the Institutional Review Board that provides protections, all receive important support from donors like you, who know that their work makes an immediate difference in people's lives.
