“I am one of the ones under 40, no family history, no genetic link and it is back as metastatic. This process was so professional, and the packaging was easy to use. I know that your drive is going to make a difference in so many lives. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.”

“I felt privileged to participate in your study. I have appendix cancer that is not very common and felt if they were able to use these donations to crack some of the codes needed to find what may cause certain cancers or lead cures for cancer. The design of your kit, the delivery and follow up deserve a lot of credit for the great job you did. I was impressed with the care you all showed. I am not a scientist or smart researcher, but you all made me feel appreciated for being a part of this research.

“I participated because of my battle with DCIS high grade 3 that resulted in double mastectomy…I am 3 months away from being two years strong…I fear when and where it may come back and appreciate all research that can be done to find a cure or better treatment..I was honored to participate in your study! Thank you.”

Donna

“I was proud to help you by sending my end product. In 2012, I had melanoma in the brain, both lungs, liver, kidney, gallbladder, left adrenal gland and spinal cord. I was in the very first trial of ipilimumab and nivolumab. For eight and a half years I’ve had no evidence of disease. Thank you for all your work to save lives.”
