Janet Freeman-Daily, patient advocate and CURE contributor, discusses some key points that patients should know about enrolling in clinical trials.

Freeman-Daily says that clinical trials are especially important for patients like her who have metastatic lung cancer, for which there is currently no cure but a number of options and clinical trials that may benefit patients.

Before joining a clinical trial, patients should know their risk and understand the difference between each of the three phases of clinical trials.
