    Patients Helping Find Cures in Houston

    Prostate cancer patient Jon Nicholson had never considered participating in a clinical trial, but after enrolling at his physician’s recommendation, his experience surpassed his expectations. Jon responded well to the trial and loves that he is helping advance research for prostate cancer to help future patients.

    "Dr. Doshi was phenomenal every time we met,” Jon Nicholson said. “She is incredibly encouraging, positive, and patient. She walked through every question I had to make sure I felt comfortable and confident moving forward. The whole trial was handled beautifully."

    Yvonne Dubra: Spreading Flowers and Faith After Cancer

    Yvonne’s faith is a big factor in her attitude. She delivers unsold flowers from a local grocer to cancer treatment centers, inspired by a store manager’s gift to her during radiation.

    "As a survivor, I want others to see me and know that they can thrive and not just survive. I hope that as I bring flowers to the various clinics, the flowers continue to bring hope and joy to the patients. Bringing hope and brightening up the patients’ days is a blessing to me."
