Lexington Medical Center is currently involved in four clinical trials for the treatment of breast cancer. Patients who meet specific criteria can choose if they would like to participate. The trials seek to find out the best ways to treat different types of breast cancer. Many times, these trials ultimately represent the future of breast cancer treatment.
WLTX news anchor Darci Strickland visited Lexington Medical Center recently to learn more about the trials from Dr. Lynn Tucker, surgeon with Lexington Surgical Associates, a hospital physician practice. And, she interviewed Cheryl Smith, a Lexington County grandmother who had successful treatment for breast cancer while enrolled in one of the clinical trials.
The photo shows Ms. Smith “ringing the chemo bell” inside Lexington Oncology after completing her last chemotherapy treatment for cancer last year.
